Intervention Programs

At St Pius X we recognise that all children learn at different rates. Through the ongoing monitoring and assessment of students, we are able to implement a range of intervention programs to support the particular needs of the individual.

We believe that all children can learn given enough time and support.  This support occurs in many different ways and through a variety of researched and evidenced based programs.
