Melbourne School introduces Berendale School in Hampton East, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Berendale School.
Berendale is a modern and innovative school that offers an alternative education for students with a mild to moderate intellectual disability. It is a Secondary Special School. Berendale is located in Hampton East and services students in the South Eastern Suburbs.
Our prime purpose is to train students to be actively engaged in their community in their post school life. This means working, living, participating, and contributing to community life. We believe that our students should be ‘valued’ by the community but also have a responsibility to ‘add value’ to the community. Throughout their school life there is a concentration on volunteer work as a viable work option.
Steeped in history, Berendale School is one of the popular school in the Hampton East area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
