Cannington Community Education Support Centre (CCESC) caters for over 100 secondary aged students. Students in Years 7-10 attend the Cannington Community College site and students in Years 11-12 attend our Sevenoaks site. CCESC is part of the broader Cannington Education precinct, located near Cannington Train Station. The school has a bus service for students in the Belmont, Bentley, Thornlie, Maddington and Gosnells areas who are unable to use public transport.
Facilities at CCESC, as with its partner schools, are state of the art. Well-appointed facilities include specialist design and technology workshops, information technology labs, a fully equipped business centre and fitness room. All CCESC classrooms have an interactive whiteboard, desktop computers, the use of iPads and laptops and a kitchen facility.
The school has identified Achievement, Independence and Respect as our core values. The school’s motto, Learning for Life, reflects our belief that learning occurs throughout life and that our students require specialised curriculum that prepares them for life.
We have high expectations, of and for our students, and work in partnership with parents and other stakeholders to provide authentic and relevant programs. The programs offered in 2023 include ASDAN (Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network) a life skills curriculum that focuses on student centred learning. In years 10-12 students are enrolled with the School Curriculum and Standards Authority in English, Maths, Health and Physical Education, Workplace Learning, Community Service, Fire and Emergency Service Cadets, and The Duke of Edinburgh Award. The school also offers Vocational Education and Training courses such as the Certificate 1 in Agrifood Operations.
Each student has an individual education plan (Middle school) or individual transition plan (Senior school), which outlines the priority objectives for the student at school, home, and in the community. These plans also form the basis for reporting to parents on students’ progress. Staff use data collection plans to address student needs across learning areas. Every student has their own data collection plan which documents the student’s progress through the learning areas. Standard testing of Reading, Spelling and Mathematics is also carried out. This information is available to parents.
CCESC is immensely proud of its reputation, the growing partnerships with the local community, but most of all the students who persistently and enthusiastically work hard and achieve their personal, academic and career goals.
