Hopetown School's primary focus is to support students with emotional / social difficulties to develop personal and social competences (emotional literacy) whilst adopting the above core values.
Students attending Hopetown have usually exhausted other educational options and adaptive strategies. The first stage of our role is to ensure that through the range of programs offered students will be able to develop necessary skills and identify goals that best suit their learning needs.
In some cases students will require other support placement options due to the programmes and support offered not being able to meet their current specific learning and support needs. These alternatives are from two broad categories : 1. Other Agencies and; 2. Home Schooling.
Other students can be supported at Hopetown until they are post - compulsory age (17 years) where there is a range of more suitable community - based training options.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land, the Darkinjung People. We pay our respects to the Elders both past and present and to those of the future, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and the hopes of Aboriginal Australia.
