Yarning Circles have been used by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples for centuries. They’re used to learn from a collective group, build respectful relationships and preserve culture. Our Yarning Circle contributes to the promotion of reconciliation, while providing a space for learning, reflecting and making connections. The Yarning Circle is on track to be completed in the beginning of Term 4, 2020.
Students have collaborated with local artist Acacia Collard in designing the artwork for the stumps. The design represents the students themselves and the schooling journey that they are on. The pathway is endless and the lines represent their growth. The tan colour will be the natural wood of the stumps.
Two school funded, purpose-built sensory rooms provide Joondalup ESC students with an opportunity to use state of the art technology to regulate their mind and body. One room provides a colourful and energetic environment, while the other room provides a calm, soothing environment. The equipment in the Sensory Rooms includes light bubble tubes, Sensory POD, interactive light and sound walls, fibre optic light strings, light up ball pit and more. All classes have access to both sensory rooms and all staff are trained in the use of the equipment.
There is also an outdoor undercover area that has many interactive activities to engage your child's senses.
