Galilee School

Communities@Work’s Galilee School is a registered, independent secondary school for disengaged and vulnerable young people in Years 7-10 in the ACT and surrounding areas for whom the mainstream schooling environment has struggled to deliver positive learning outcomes.

About Galilee School

Galilee School offers a supportive and flexible learning program that aims to meet the individual needs of students. The School operates 2 campuses. One in Holder for Year 10 and one in Kambah for Year 7-9. The school employs a team of skilled teachers, youth workers and support staff who are able to support students presenting with a range of learning abilities.

The school provides students with a quality education aligned with the Australian Curriculum and modified to meet the needs of the individual as outlined in each student’s Individualised Learning Plan.

The learning environment available at Galilee School provides a range of opportunities for students to engage with their learning and to explore individual interests and passions while improving social and emotional capabilities. To increase the education and employment opportunities for students, the school also provides training, skill development and job ready support for students transitioning to the workforce or to further educational opportunities.

The individual education needs of all students are met via a flexible support model that is learner centred, strengths based, relationship driven and restorative. The program provided by Communities@Work’s Galilee School builds and develops long-term resilience and resourcefulness in the young people attending the school.

Students leave the school with a heightened sense of respect for themselves and for others as well as having increased levels of self-confidence. The school seeks to inspire young people to realise their full potential by developing and utilising their unique talents and capabilities and by aiding students to find a sense of purpose and value in themselves as productive and worthwhile members of our community.

The program provided by Communities@Work’s Galilee School does not focus on a ‘quick fix’, but rather seeks to nurture long-term resilience and resourcefulness. The objective is to promote respect and confidence, and to inspire young people to realise their full potential by developing their unique talents and capabilities. In essence, a holistic package is created to help students mature into responsible young adults and lay the platform for a successful future.

Our Referral Process

Referrals to Galilee School can be made by a family member, a youth worker or case worker, may come from the school the student is currently attending or can be made by the young person themselves.

Referrals are made directly to the School, and are accepted at all times of the year – with new students generally commencing at the start of each term (depending on when referral and enrolment processes can be completed). At various times of the year a waiting list may be established. The waiting list is regularly reviewed as placements become available.
