Return to On-Site Learning – Tuesday 26th May 2020
The Victorian Premier and Education Minister have announced that from Tuesday 26 May, all specialist school students (including Verney Road School) will return to on-site learning.
Our Communication Team has produced a Social Story resource to assist students with preparing for the change back to on-site learning. Click here to download.
Welcome to Term 2 and to a whole new learning experience for us all. We would like to congratulate you all on how flexible and adaptable you have been, and most of all for being patient while we all get used to remote learning.
It seems strange to be starting the term with messages of thanks, but in this case we think they are very important in the circumstances. Thank you to our ever-supportive parents and carers who continue to go above and beyond in supporting your children.
We have been buoyed by your messages of positivity and gratefulness. Thank you also to our staff, many of whom have worked through the holidays to get their heads around remote learning. Their flexibility and dedication is a huge credit to them.
Angela Buxton – Principal
Carolyn West – Assistant Principal, Teaching & Learning

Allied Health Online
Our Allied Health team is excited to offer online Therapy Based supports to relevant students during this period of remote learning.
Courtney (Occupational Therapist), Jane (Physiotherapist) and Laura (Speech Therapist) can work with staff and families through WebEx consultation, to provide advice and resource provision to support individual student’s needs in these areas.
It is important to note that to engage with students, there is a relevant goal from the student’s Individual Education Plan related to this area of therapeutic need. If you would like to add a goal that is particularly relevant during the remote learning period, or would like to book a chat with one of our Allied Health team, please contact your classroom teacher via Flexibuzz or e-mail.
