Learning Journeys are conducted every third term a invite parents and carers to join them in their classrooms to share their learning and achievements. This is usually timed to coincide with the culmination of major units of work the children have undertaken. It is a wonderful opportunity to share in your child's learning and celebrate their achievements.
Learning Support Unit (LSU)
At Yarralumla there are two Autism specific Learning Support Units (LSU) which cater for children throughout Canberra. Each class has one specialist teacher, an assistant and up to six children. We have a Junior Unit (K-3) and a Senior Unit (4-6). The children integrate into the mainstream classes with support as they are able. For more information contact the School Principal.
The new Yarralumla School Library constructed through ‘Building Education Revolution’ funds is operated by a Teacher Librarian. Children visit in class groups, small groups or individually for research and private borrowing. In addition to class visits, the library is also open for children's use before school and during lunch times. The library has a good collection of picture books, beginners chapter books, literature for older readers, reference and non-fiction material. The library is automatically stocked with the Children’s Book Council Short Listed books each year. All children are encouraged to borrow and require a library bag. The library is supported by the Library Trust Fund.
