Classrooms in Action

The school offers the successful ‘Classrooms in Action’ mornings for parents and carers of our students.

These events provide an opportunity for parents to understand in more depth what and how we teach, as well as having the opportunity to visit and see the classrooms in action and also receive clarification around the Speech Pathology and Occupational Therapy service provided at WAS. The dates of the Classroom in Action events will be posted here in the future.
