- Classroom, Individual and Small Group Counseling
- Parent Consults and Workshops
- Transitions Support
- Faculty Partnering
- Child Safeguarding including the Keeping Safe Curriculum
- Referrals (to internal and external resources as needed)
- Future Planning (College/Career Counseling)
If you are curious about how we might support your child please contact:
The Learning Support Department provides on-going support for students who have gone through a referral and identification process. Support is offered for challenges related to all aspects of learning and students with exceptional abilities in different subjects. Learning Support specialists advise teachers regarding the needs of students and coordinate communication between administrators, teachers, students and parents. We offer in-class support using the inclusion model and pull-out support. Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) are shared and reviewed with students, teachers and parents twice a year.
Intervention is designed to:
meet individual learning needs and styles
ensure full access to the curriculum
develop the student’s ability to be an independent learner
remove barriers to learning
The Learning Support Department affirms the right of all our students to develop to their maximum potential in a warm and caring educational environment.
A doctor employed by International SOS medical clinic works full time at TISA. Her office is in the corridor between TISA 1 and 2. It is open from 8.10am to 4pm.
If a student becomes unwell during the school day, the teacher sends them to the doctor. She then cares for the student and returns them to class when well, or arranges for the student to be collected by the parents if they are unfit for school. The doctor informs the homeroom teacher if a student is sent home. Many members of staff are also qualified in First Aid.Should you have any health-related questions, feel free to contact us by phone at: (012) 404 12 01 (ext. 128)
