You've got questions, we've got answers!
With so many things to think about and weigh up, we've put together the most frequently asked questions for you.
If you are caring for a young person who is not succeeding at mainstream school, perhaps Eagles RAPS Inc is for you. Through our program young people can complete their education in a smaller, friendly, family-like environment that is able to cater to the individual needs of each young person.
Students in the program will take holidays at the same time as mainstream public schools do, however, staff will still be available during the holidays on a flexible timetable should the student have issues that need to be addressed.
There are no set criteria for entry into our program other than the student has to be 15 years or older. Each prospective student is required to attend an interview (preferably with a carer or parent) to determine if the service is suitable for the student, and vice-versa. You can arrange an interview by phoning Sally or Scott on 02 9679 9991 or 0418 417 124
The amount of time young people attend our program varies according to the needs of the student. Some will return to mainstream school after a short stay in our program, others will complete their education with us up to year 10 equivalent (Certificate II) or HSC. We also offer a select few vocational courses.
The hours that the student is required to attend varies depending on the course being undertaken and the circumstances of the student. As a general rule, a young person who is studying up to year 10 level is required to attend a minimum of three days per week and up to five days per week.
There are no fees and all study material and resources will be provided by Eagles RAPS Inc.
The school day is 9:30am to 3:00pm. The students have a five minute break each hour and lunch is from 12:30 to 1:15pm. If the student has a valid reason for not being able to attend the normal hours, alternative times can be arranged with the staff.
There is no uniform for the student. The student is entitled to wear casual clothes provided they are not offensive to others i.e. respectful, clean and no pictures or texts that may offend other students or staff.
