The programs at our Mansfield campus are individualised and flexible.
We have a strong emphasis on health and wellbeing, building personal and social capabilities and life skills. We want students to feel a sense of belonging and connectedness while at school.
Our current programs at the Mansfield Campus are:
- Day Students – ages 5 – 18 years. Approx 3 classrooms. 9am to 3 pm.
- Transition Unit – dual enrolment with a local primary school, learning the skills to engage in a mainstream classroom. Up to 6 students with 1 teacher / 1 teacher assistant.
- Hands On @The Farm – a therapeutic and practical day at our Farm with a focus on reducing anxiety and building social skills. Up to 6 students with 1 teacher / 1 teacher assistant.
The school is committed to offering students a safe and supportive environment which allows students a chance to explore a range of activities and interest areas in a safe and supported way. As with all our services, our students are at the centre of our planning. We believe that all people should be supported to realise their individual capacities for physical, social, emotional and intellectual development. Here at MASS, we place a strong emphasis on health and wellbeing, building relationships, social skills and confidence in learning. We aim to develop foundational life skills alongside the skills and capabilities outlined in the Victorian Curriculum learning areas.
Our model prioritises building an understanding of the person, as well as the interplay between autism and the person’s life and learning. All students have an Individual Learning Plan, developed in consultation with a student’s family, carers and Care Team. It forms part of the ongoing assessment, planning, teaching and evaluation cycle we engage in for each of our students.
We seek to establish respectful relationships with our students and their families. We ask that all families work with our teaching staff and that our teaching staff collaborate and communicate with our parents and families. Together, we work to provide a transparent and open educational service.
Our school is located at 81 Highett St Mansfield.
The curriculum is flexible to meet the needs and interest areas of our students with a strong focus on personal and social development.
