Distinctive School Status for Halls Head CC ESC

In 2013, Halls Head Community College Education Support Centre was recognised by the More Support for Students with Disabilities (MSSD) Project as a school of distinction. The Distinctive Schools project is a Department of Education initiative that has offered HHCC ESC the opportunity to share our knowledge and expertise with partner schools in local networks and regions.

The school is working with partner schools on two projects:

1. Provide collaborative support to partner schools in the use of the online Reporting to Parents-Special Education Needs tool; HHCC ESC provides support to enhance partner schools capacity to plan and report for students with educational needs using the Departments online RTP-SEN tool.

2. Provide trainings, forums, network meetings and internal/external moderation sessions as a network partner with Leeming SHSESC and Atwell College in the delivery of ASDAN Award Programs.

HHCC ESC nominated a Project Leader, Candyce Doorn, to coordinate, liaise and provide support to schools. The HHCC ESC RTP-SEN Project funding has just been extended to the end of Term 3, 2014 and the ASDAN Project funding will continue until the end of Term 4, 2014.

Crunch 'N' Sip Policycrunch  sip

 

The Halls Head Education Support Centers’ Crunch&Sip program aims to encourage the students in each class to eat fruit and vegetables and drink water every day. Students re-fuel' with fruit or vegetables during the morning and this assists with their physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom.

The objectives of Crunch&Sip are to:

  • increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit or vegetables and drinking water
  • enable students, teachers and staff to eatthe classroom, during break times and at sports, excursions and camps
  • encourage parents to provide students with fruit or vegetables
  • develop strategies to help students who don't have regular access to fruit and vegetables fruit or vegetables during an allocated Crunch&Sip break in the classroom
  • encourage students, teachers and staff to drink water throughout the day in the classroom, during break times and at sports, excursions and camps
  • encourage parents to provide students with fruit or vegetables
  • develop strategies to help students who don't have regular access to fruit and vegetables.

Students will bring fruit or salad vegetables to school to eat in the classroom each day in negotiation with their key teacher.

Acceptable dry fruit or vegetables to bring into class are:

  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Banana
  • Grapes
  • Carrot sticks
  • Celery sticks
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Dried fruit (Apricots, Apples and Raisins)

Additionally, our school will provide each student with a bottle of water in the classroom to drink throughout the day to prevent dehydration. We hope that our the HHESC Crunch n Sip program gives our students healthy way to refuel, aids in improving their concentration, as well as their mental and physical performance at school.
