About Communities@Work Galilee School
Communities@Work's Galilee School is a registered, independent secondary school designed specifically for disengaged and vulnerable young people from the Canberra region. Galilee School is classified as a Special Assistance School. As a Special Assistance School, it provides opportunity for the establishment of a positive learning path for those young people that have previously not thrived in mainstream education.
Galilee School offers a supportive and flexible learning program that aims to meet the individual learning needs of all students.
Galilee School employs a team of highly skilled educators, youth workers and support staff who are able to support students presenting with a range of learning abilities.
Galilee School provides students with a quality education in line with the Australian Curriculum and tailored to achieve the objectives outlined in each student’s Individualised Learning Plan.
The learning environments available at Galilee School provide a range of opportunities for students to engage with their learning and to explore individual interests and passions while upskilling social and emotional capabilities.
Galilee School operates across two campuses; one on Westwood Farm in Canberra and teh second in Holder. The two campus structure enables a more tailored approach to meeting the learning needs of students as they transition through the school and toward further education, training or employment.
To increase the education and employment opportunities for students, Galilee School also provides training, skill development and job ready support for students transitioning to the workforce or to further educational opportunities.
The individual education needs of all students are met via a flexible support model that is learner centred; strengths based; relationship driven and restorative. The program provided by Galilee School builds and develops long-term resilience and resourcefulness in the young people attending the school.
Students leave Galilee School with a heightened sense of respect for themselves and for others as well as having increased levels of self confidence. Galilee school seeks to inspire young people to realise their full potential by developing and utilising their unique talents and capabilities; by aiding students to find a sense of purpose and value in themselves as productive and worthwhile members of our community.
