Starting in term three of this school year, the I Can Network will be expanding its mentoring program to Manor Lakes P-12 school.
Our mentoring team has been meeting regularly with staff at Manor Lakes for several months now, to ensure we meet the specific needs of the school and its students. We will commence with the senior students, then hopefully with the middle-junior students in the near future.
The different dynamic of the Manor Lakes school, with its four streams of senior, junior, middle and special education students will be a unique and rewarding experience for the I Can Network.
As always, we aim to teach skills, build confidence, and give a higher quality life to students on the spectrum, all while promoting an ‘I Can’ attitude. We do this by adjusting and running the workshop to suit the environment and needs of the individual students, who deal with many different challenges on a daily basis.
We’re very excited about our collaboration with Manor Lakes, and we can’t wait to get started!
