The students and staff at Annandale may receive additional support through the advice and programs of the Learning Support Teacher and  the Special Education Program.

Students with additional needs are brought to the attention of the Special Needs group. Their needs are reviewed and discussed and the group plans a process for  further investigating the student's needs and determining the most appropriate support for the student.

Learning Support

The school has two Learning Support Teachers - Literacy and Numeracy ( STLaN): Mrs Jeni Lee ( Prep to Year 2) and Mrs Toni Hull (Year 3 to Year 6).

The STLaN work closely with the Deputy Principals and the class teachers.
