Celebrating ability through high expectations

Curriculum

The curriculum at Lucas Gardens School provides all students with opportunities to participate in a diverse range of learning experiences. The generosity of the community has allowed the school to provide the services of a physiotherapist and speech pathologist who work with staff and parents and carers to support the needs and learning of all students. The school pioneered the use of iPads as a communication device and each classroom has a smarboard which is used across all curriculum areas.
