Our Purpose is to provide learner-centred programs that assist children and youth in developing the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to build a healthy community. We welcome individual differences within an atmosphere of mutual respect and co-operation.
The Sunshine Coast Alternative School consists of 10 self-contained progams located at different sites. These are district programs that take both school, and self or family referrals.
Students are referred to district programs by schools when students' educational needs, emotional or behavioural difficulties prevent their home school from being able to provide an educational program. Students may self-refer when his/her educational needs require alternative paths from the regular school environment.
In addition to those staff in each of the programs the following personnel support the whole school; Special Education Teachers, Counsellors; Career Preparation Teacher; Aboriginal Education Support Teacher; Fine Arts Teacher; Administration Assistant, Office Assistant.
