What to expect at our inpatient service, St Joseph’s Richmond Road, Fairview
Our school day is 9.30 - 14.30. There are five classes a day. You will get a mix of curricular subjects, support around learning & careers, and fun! When you start, you will be assigned a key teacher. A key teacher is the person who will discuss all aspects of your schooling with you. Your input matters greatly. You will also be given a folder which you bring to school daily. If you have your own school books, feel free to bring them! A nurse accompanies students to school and stays onsite for your needs. We sit together in the common area for snack break and social time.
On occasion, you may have to attend appointments with other staff members during the school day as part of your care.
