What is the Learning Support Team?

The Learning Support Team (LST) helps students who experience difficulties in learning or who have barriers to their learning.

The Learning Support Team can assist parents with the identification of a learning disability and help in working to create an environment in which the educational needs of their child are being met.

A key feature of the learning support team is the facilitation of collaborative planning between teachers, support staff, parents and students.
