Monash Children's Hospital School together with the Monash Children's Hospital Chronic Fatigue Clinic would like to congratulate Jeremy Chan on receiving the Premier's VCE Award for Music Sound Production. Congratulations […]
"Through the communication between MCHS and our school, we have been informed of educational focus areas, emotional development, level of coping and general well-being."
"The teachers are so caring and always may you feel so welcome, no matter what your situation is."
“The teachers are really great at communicating with students and the different situations they present.”
“The teachers are extremely friendly and will put extra effort in to help students in the school learn at their best. I had work sent from school and the teacher here was able to help me. She helped me a lot during one of my assessments and allowed me to get a better score. My teacher at my real school said it was great.”
"The staff of MCHS seem so committed and passionate about the role of education for the patients."
“The school was great, especially in letting me choose what work to do depending on how I was feeling. There was never any pressure.”
"My daughter wasn’t able to go to school for a year. The Monash teachers were able to give her enough school work at just the right times to help her keep some confidence in her ability to learn. I can’t imagine how hard returning to her regular school would have been without this assistance. Our family is so grateful"
"The involvement of MCHS staff in a young person’s transition back to school is extremely helpful."
"The flexibility and expert skills of the MCHS staff are highly valued here at the hospital."
"I got discharged from the hospital yesterday afternoon, but I didn't get a chance to thank you for helping me with my schoolwork. You really helped me a lot and I hope I wasn't too annoying and the maths questions didn't hurt your head too much. Ha-ha!
Thank you so much."
"Staff are understanding and supportive to everyone's different needs. They understand and help you if you are lost or confused about something. The room is colourful to make you feel more like you are at school or at home. You are able to work on whatever you need to. Thank you very much."
"My daughter wasn’t able to go to school for a year. Without the support and teaching by the Monash staff she would have been completely disconnected from her education. Our family is so grateful"
"MCHS staff were very supportive of our student’s transition back into school and gave us insights into the school’s decisions regarding timetabling. Meetings between the school, hospital and family were made and helped the transition back to school."
"MCHS is an engaging, inclusive and enjoyable learning environment."
"MCHS has significantly enhanced my child’s willingness to engage in learning and positively impacted on their desire to get back to school."
"It is definitely OK to be different at this school".
"I really like the extracurricular activities. The teachers are very encouraging and let you go at your own pace."
"I really enjoyed the STEM activities. I like being able to get out of my hospital bed and interact with other people."
"I really enjoyed attending school because even though I’m a very independent learner I felt as though the teachers were able to assist me whenever I needed help. I didn’t feel pressured to do any of my work if I wasn’t well enough and I felt comfortable here."
“I look forward to school when I’m in hospital and the teachers are so good - I get a lot done.”
"I just wanted to thank you personally for all of your help. I am really happy and surprised with the news that I got into a course. It wouldn't have been possible without your assistance. Thank you so much for everything."
“Good environment, teachers seem like they genuinely care about how we learn.”
"Education at MCHS really targets the learning needs of my child."
“At the Monash Children’s Hospital School all the teachers make the school work a lot less stressful and easier for me to understand.”
