Visit from the Wanneroo Civic Choir

Today we had a visit at St Stephen’s School Carramar from the Wanneroo Civic Choir. They performed to all of the children in Years PP-6 and featured our very own staff member from Pre – Primary in Debbie Randell as she is a member of this group.  It was awesome as they sang songs together with our children, it was rewarding for our students and the choir alike!

NCCD: National data collection

Dear Parents,

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on school students with disability (NCCD) provides all Australian schools, education authorities and the community with a clear picture of the number of students receiving adjustments because of disability or difficulties in schools, and the adjustments they are provided to enable them to participate effectively in their education.

The Australian Education Regulation 2013, requires that all schools, provide information to the Australian Government Department of Education and Training (the Department) for the purposes of the NCCD.

The information that Schools must give to the Department includes, in relation to each student:

  • the student’s level of education (i.e. primary or secondary)
  • the student’s category of difficulty (i.e. physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional)
  • the student’s level of adjustment (i.e. support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive adjustment).

Please note, any information collected, will not identify any individual student, in any way.

For further information regarding the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data school students with disability, please visit:

If you have any queries regarding the NCCD, please contact the relevant Learning Enrichment staff:


Mrs Celeste de Villiers (K-2)


Helen Coombs (Primary Yrs 3-6)


Michael Crawshaw (Secondary)
