Vanier Unit

"In the Vanier Unit a small group of students with intellectual disabilities benefit from an alternative secondary curriculum within the integrated setting of a Catholic secondary College."

The program offers students opportunities to develop skills for:

  •     Independent living
  •     Transition from school to work
  •     Leisure in the wider community
The Vanier Unit gives the students the benefit of significant social interaction with their peers while retaining the advantage of an academic program geared to their individual ability.

In the junior years, students work at their own pace and level on individual lessons or in small group programs designed by the Special Education Teacher.

In later years, the SACE program is offered to students using curriculum adapted to their individual needs. Subjects studied may vary from year to year depending on group activities and interests. Work Experience is provided as part of the SACE Program.
