The Bridge centre provides a temporary learning environment for Year 8-10 students as an intervention for those who experience challenges within the mainstream. There is a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and skills for living. Practical learning activities are available. Students are also encouraged to participate in community projects and activities. Participants negotiate individual learning programs and develop a behaviour and learning contract which is reviewed weekly. There is a strong emphasis on families and school staff working together to improve school attendance. Entry to the program is by application or referral from the Middle School Assistant Principal for consideration by a review panel.
