Deaf Education Centre

Deaf and hard of hearing students enrol directly into Belmont City College and participate in a mainstream education experience unless their individual needs require their withdrawal for specific subjects. This ensures the highest level of inclusion for all Deaf and hard of hearing students. Often for year 7, 8 and 9 students this would mean they’re having English classes in the Deaf Education classroom.
