We also have a strong connection with the One and All program, as well as working closely with Echuca Specialist School on a number of inclusive activities.
Cross Age Interaction
We have four house groups, Burnanga, Barra, Djarring, and Gurburr. We plan activities regularly that require these houses to work co-operatively as a team. We also have a buddy program that gives older children in the school an opportunity to mentor and support a younger buddy.
