Aurora School

Dear Children and Families,

I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you as you embark on your journey with Aurora School and I am looking forward to you becoming part of our community.

Aurora is committed to providing a nurturing and inclusive bilingual (English and Auslan) environment for children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing (DHH); for children who are Deafblind; for children who are Deaf with additional support needs; and for children who are hearing who attend our Community Kindergarten.

Here at Aurora we prioritise Bilingual Education, Inclusivity, Individualised Learning, Community Engagement and Cultural celebrations.

Our curriculum is designed to support the development of both Auslan and English language skills. Our aim is for your child to have the opportunity to become proficient in both languages, enhancing their communication abilities and cultural understanding.

We value diversity and inclusivity. Our dedicated team of educators and allied health staff are experienced in working with children who are Deaf, hard of hearing, or hearing, and are trained to meet the unique needs of each child. Developing relationships with peers, staff and families helps build a sense of belonging and community.

We recognise that every child is unique, curious and ready to learn. Our educators work closely and in partnership with you to create Individualised Learning Plans for your child, ensuring your child receives the support and challenges they need to thrive in a safe and nurturing environment.

We believe that family and community involvement is essential for a child’s success. We encourage you to partner in your child’s educational journey and participate in our events, workshops, and family meetings.

We also emphasise the celebration of Deaf culture and history, First Nations culture and history, and the culture and history of each family. We want your child to develop a strong sense of identity and pride in their linguistic and cultural heritage.

At Aurora, we aim for every day/every visit/every group program, to be an opportunity for growth, discovery and learning, a place where laughter, curiosity and friendship flourish.

I am very proud to be the Principal of Aurora School and thank you for enabling us to share your child’s journey with you. My door, or email, or phone is always open for your thoughts and ideas.

Kind regards,

Vicki Main
