Creaney ESC

Creaney-ESC1Creaney Primary School and Creaney Education Support Centre are two separate schools sharing one campus.  Each operates with their own Principal and staff. Where possible we endeavor for students from both campuses to integrate together to support our students in society.

PlayLinks

PlayLinks, an innovative, reverse integration program, was developed at Creaney ESC and is now receiving interest from schools around the state. This program teaches the senior students from Creaney Primary about interacting with Special Educational Needs students whilst working through certificate levels as ‘PlayLinks Monitors’. The monitors are responsible for the management of a structured play station within the ESC play area. They are taught the principles of positive behaviour management, Makaton sign language and Picture Exchange Communication Systems. As well as developing positive attitudes and knowledge of disabilities in the senior Primary students, the program also offers the ESC students more opportunities to interact with their mainstream peers.
