In Year 2, students engage in learning activities which are specifically designed to meet the variety of needs of all students.

Lessons are based on the NSW Curriculum with a strong focus on the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy through specialised targeted programmes.

Opportunity is provided for students to progress at their own rate. Students are given extension work as required and support where needed for any learning difficulties.
