MSIS has developed a unique collaborative approach that supports the development of the whole child. Each and every student is well represented and has an individual learning plan to support his/her growth and development using a visual arts and performing arts inspired curriculum. We believe that a child’s role is to experience learning as an adventure in an environment that accommodates his/her learning as encapsulated by the MSIS School Model.
MSIS was founded to give all children and young people with disabilities a right to learn, thrive and achieve in a warm and welcoming environment.
Our vision is to create a more inclusive community that recognises that everyone can contribute to society in some way.
Our core beliefs and values provide the strong foundation for our approach to service delivery at MSIS. We believe that early diagnosis and intervention are critical to giving all children with a learning disability a positive start in life. Our unique collaborative approach helps us to transform the lives of children and young people with disabilities and help them reach their potential in a positive manner. We are committed to providing excellent care, learning opportunities and support needed to improve the life of our students. We believe that all children have a right to education and should be given an equal opportunity to be included in our community.
We recognise that parents and carers play an important role in supporting young people to be able to live independently and make decisions about their future lives. We are committed to working collaboratively with our students, families and specialists. Our values are reflected by our commitment to education services which:
- Focus on the best possible outcomes in personal and academic success for children, young people and their families, based on their abilities.
- Deliver an open and honest approach which ensures that the student is the focus and priority through a multidisciplinary approach.
- Welcome a diverse school environment that is well supported with resources and best practises which are reflective and evidence based
- Provide opportunities by developing partnerships which support employment and a range of appropriate pathways into adulthood.
