St Philip’s Christian College DALE is a Dynamic Alternative Learning Environment for students in Years 3-12 who have a diagnosis of Anxiety, Depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
SPCC DALE fills the gap for students who want a mainstream education but are unable to access this in its entirety due to their mental health needs.
With campuses in Gosford, Cessnock, Port Stephens and Waratah, our aim at SPCC DALE is to create a positive environment in which students with particular social, emotional and learning needs can feel loved, understood, challenged and secure.
I spent four fun filled years at this amazing school being taught by wonderful teachers and making friends along the way.
SPCC DALE is a child safe environment
No child should suffer harm, either at home or at school. Everyone who works in our school has a responsibility to make sure that all our children and young people are safe. All those who come into contact with children and young people at our school, whether a paid employee or volunteer, have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people.
Any person visiting the school, including parents, must attend Reception first to sign in. No parent is able to walk directly to their child's classroom without signing in and seeking permission to do so.
