Our Approach to Learning
Through research and practise, SASY has identified a different approach in re-engaging young people. Our holistic pedagogical approach is specifically designed to give students a voice. SASY has implemented a model of learning which encompasses holistic learning, restorative practice, trauma informed practice and an inclusive community.
At SASY, we acknowledge that academic and personal growth best occurs in a safe and supportice environment where physical, emotional, cognitive and behavioural issues are addressed as part of a holistic learning approach.
A Specialised Team
Students are supported onsite by Teachers, Senior Youth Practitioners, Youth Workers, Case Managers and Student Support Officers, an on-site Psychologist and external providers when required. Staff support students to develop skills in self-regulation of emotional states and behaviours which have the potential to risk harm to self or others.
Our staff collaborate with students to help them find topics that interest them, set achievable and meaningful learning and wellbeing goals that are tracked throughout the year, and adjust teaching delivery to suit their individual student needs when required.
