Port Outreach Program aims to create a bridge that helps connect the students back into life and back into school and a learning environment.
Our main focus is to support students academically, socially and emotionally through the Outreach Program. The role of the Outreach Team is wide and varied; we support students to access health and medical assistance when the parent is absent or unable to support their child. We liaise with parents and carers when students are in care of child protection agencies. We bring the classroom and peers to the home when a student cannot come to school. We provide the means for students to attend sport and recreational facilities and assist students to join local sporting teams. Port Outreach is the helping hand supporting students make contact and maintain healthy relationships within their community.
Our program also aims to help improve social, emotional and physical wellness and, if necessary, can link the student in with the appropriate professional or agency. Port’s Outreach Team aim for success by valuing these principles.
