Rosie* came to us in 2018 as a 14-year-old with significant barriers to education.
She was experiencing poor mental health and used drugs as an outlet.
Through working with her case manager, Rosie began to address her drug use and was linked to mental health support.
Gradually her level of engagement and interest in education increased and she began to work on her Personal Learning Plan (PLP) in case management sessions away from traditional learning environments. These outreach settings helped Rosie build on her confidence to re enter the class room.
Happily, Rosie made so much progress that last term she set a goal in her case plan outlining her interest in returning to mainstream school.
At the end of Term 3, Rosie successfully transitioned back into mainstream school.
Rosie continues to receive extremely positive feedback and is engaged in school-based case management until the end of 2020.
We wish Rosie all the very best for her future.
