Bray Park State School provides quality intervention support programs to supplement the efforts of class and support teachers. From prep, children are monitored closely to identify early weaknesses in literacy and numeracy. Support programs are developed and regularly adjusted to meet the needs of identified students.
Special Education Program (SEP)
Bray Park SEP is coded to support students identified within the following disability areas:
Support is also provided for students with a range of other disabilities e.g. hearing impairment and vision impairment.
The SEP is staffed by special education teachers and teacher aides. Our SEP operates a predominately inclusive model of support where students are supported within their classroom environment, with their class teacher and SEP staff working cooperatively to provide the appropriate level and style of support for individual students.
Our guidance officer's role is to provide guidance and counselling support to our school community so that equity is achieved in educational access, participation and outcomes for all students. This includes providing support to the school in developing a supportive school environment.
The main emphasis of the role is on support for the educational, physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of our children. It may be direct or indirect, through working with the child, parents, teachers or other agencies.
Our chaplain seeks to provide a caring presence, be a listening ear and a support to students going through difficult times. Chappy is the link between students, our guidance officer and/or outside community help if needed.
The role includes, but is not limited to, providing information and support for students who may have questions around spirituality or ethics and acting as a link between families, community churches and/or youth groups if they desire. Whilst Scripture Union Qld chaplains are from a christian faith background, we respect those who hold other beliefs and worldviews.
Participation in any of the chaplaincy programs is voluntary. Parents are encouraged to sign chaplaincy program agreement. Should you be unable to download the form from this page, please contact us and we will provide a copy via the school office.
Our school has the support of the local community elders from Bunyabilla, who attend and chair the school’s indigenous advisory committee meetings. The elders provide advice to the school on curriculum issues and support many of the activities which take place throughout the year, such as National Aborigines and Islanders Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, special events and assemblies.
Working within the school to support our students we have an indigenous community education advisor who visits the school, as well as an indigenous teacher aide, who works in the classrooms with the students.
