NATIONALLY CONSISTENT COLLECTION OF DATA ON SCHOOL STUDENTS WITH DISABILITY (NCCD)

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). The NCCD process requires schools to identify information already available in the school about supports provided to students with disability. These relate to legislative requirements under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and the Disability Standards for Education 2005, in line with the NCCD guidelines (2019).

Information provided about students to the Australian Government for the NCCD includes:

  • year of schooling
  • category of disability: physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional
  • level of adjustment provided: support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive.

This information assists schools to:

  • formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability in schools
  • consider how they can strengthen the support of students with disability in schools
  • develop shared practices so that they can review their learning programs in order to improve educational outcomes for students with disability.

The NCCD provides state and federal governments with the information they need to plan more broadly for the support of students with disability.

The NCCD will have no direct impact on your child and your child will not be involved in any testing process. The school will provide data to the Australian Government in such a way that no individual student will be able to be identified – the privacy and confidentiality of all students is ensured. All information is protected by privacy laws that regulate the collection, storage and disclosure of personal information. To find out more about these matters, please refer to the Australian Government’s Privacy Policy.

Further information about the NCCD can be found on the NCCD Portal

If you have any questions about the NCCD, please contact the school.

Mr Michael Balic, Head of Inclusive Education

WE WILL ROCK YOU!

We are excited to announce that the 2023 College Musical will be ‘We Will Rock You’ by Queen and Ben Elton. ‘We Will Rock You’ takes place in a future age on a planet once called Earth (now called iPlanet) that is controlled by a mighty corporation called Globalsoft and led by the villainous Killer Queen. Rock music and all musical instruments are banned! The hope of breaking free rests with an unlikely resistance, an alliance of rebel Bohemians lead by Galileo and Scaramouche.

This hilarious futurist comedy contains Queen’s biggest hit songs including We Are The Champions, Radio Ga Ga, I Want To Break Free, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites The Dust and of course, We Will Rock You.

We will perform at the Woodville Town Hall in May 2023. Students at the Secondary Campus who are interested in auditioning for a lead role should contact Mrs Emily Burns for audition parts as well as check the morning notices for further Musical information, including being part of the band, ensemble, set painting crew and backstage crew. Students at the Primary Campus should contact Miss Talia Gaertner-Jones for Musical information.
