Q7. Is the school or any of its services covered by NDIS?

NDIS funding unfortunately stops at the College door, this means that no NDIS funds can be attributed to any educational facility from Prep to Year 12. Funding can still be used for your privately arranged therapy sessions.

Q8. Why does Eaton College not offer Years 11 and 12? Would there be scope to guarantee transition into Calvary Christian College for the students who wish to continue their studies?

The educational model of Eaton College is Prep to Year 10. During year 10, students will be encouraged and assisted to develop a transition plan into further study, apprenticeship, or the workforce. Applications to Calvary Christian College would be required to go through College’s enrolment process. All applications to Calvary would be assessed to ensure the College can meet the student’s individual needs. Offers of placement would be based upon this outcome.  

Q9. My child is in Year 3 and is unable to independently toilet. Will Eaton College be able to cater for this?

While we understand that toileting can be difficult, it is an enrolment pre-requisite that all students are independently toileting or working towards this goal. Should your child have difficulties independent toileting we strongly encourage you to engage with your child’s therapy team to discuss a plan. 

Q10. Will Eaton College students be able to access Calvary Christian College facilities by way of excursions?

As Eaton College and Calvary Christian College are both part of the Calvary Education Group, a strong partnership will develop between both institutions. Access to Calvary Christian College facilities will be carefully planned to accommodate both Colleges’ student requirements.
