Promoting Independence through Active Learning

At Yarra Ranges Special Developmental School, the school community has a shared belief that every child has the same right as their peers to access age-equivalent learning experiences from all learning areas of the Victorian Curriculum. Learning experiences are planned using the Victorian Curriculum at an age appropriate level. Student individual goals are aligned with the relevant achievement standard in the Victorian Curriculum at an appropriate developmental stage.
