Health and Active Lifestyle Program
At Rockingham Beach ESC we strive to instil independence in our students. We facilitate independence in mealtime management, toileting, dressing, hygiene skills and engaging in the community. A comprehensive life skills program is incorporated into every classroom and is supported by access to full kitchen and laundry facilities.
Our Physical Education curriculum is enhanced with community participation in Swimming lessons, horse riding, dance instruction, bowling and other opportunities that benefit from community involvement and engagement.
Protective Behaviours are explicitly taught in every classroom with all students being able to nominate a network of people who will support them. The Protective Behaviours program is based on two themes:
We all have the right to feel safe at all times
We can talk with someone about anything, no matter what it is
In addition, we utilise the Rockingham Beach ESC safety circles to enhance our protective behaviours program.
