Curriculum & Services

Our Program

St Mary’s College for the deaf provides a curriculum and range of services designed to maximize the language, communicative and social competencies of each student, enabling them to reach their full potential. We endeavor to

  • recognise and value the worth of each student

  • develop an understanding of the Catholic faith which will foster faith development and Christian values in each student

  • promote the development of communication and listening skills to facilitate cognitive, linguistic and social development

  • encourage understanding and acceptance of deafness to enable each student to become a confident, independent learner

  • accept errors as part of learning and encourage risk taking in learning

  • provide educational experiences that integrate academic, physical, emotional and social development within interdisciplinary teams to ensure the most appropriate learning and teaching methods
