Banksia Education

Maintaining connections with education

Banksia Education supports the educational needs of students (aged 13-18 years) during an admission to the Banksia Ward at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

 

The learning program includes a range of subjects including Art, Science, Physical Education, English, Maths and Cooking, as well as offering regular excursions. The program is designed to support students to experience a sense of achievement and success in the classroom.

 

Each student is supported by their Key Teacher to maintain connections with their enrolled school/education setting during their admission. Key teachers also work with students, the care team and school staff to develop a return to school plan for when students are discharged.
