The foundation of Luis Fragale’s (Year 3) journey at St. Mary’s College for the Deaf and the Marymede Community all began with a regular visit to Australian Hearing in Moonee Ponds, where Luis’ Audiologist would inform his parents of the School and their partnership with Marymede Catholic College.

St. Mary’s College for the Deaf welcomes Prep to Year 12 students with significant hearing loss into a vibrant, exceptional learning community in partnership with Marymede Catholic College at its South Morang Campus. Their educational program for deaf and hard of hearing students operates within five local partner primary and secondary schools across Melbourne. Students integrate within the partner school wearing the same uniform and attending classes and other school events as members of those school communities. 

Luis’ Mother, Jacqueline recalls learning of St. Mary’s existence as a great sense of relief. “Not only would Luis be able to attend a Catholic school that is very close to where we live but he was also going to be supported with his hearing loss. We arranged at interview and tour with St Mary’s at Marymede, we knew then it was the best place for Luis’ education.”

Although they would spend a significant amount of time in their mainstream class, students enrolled into St. Mary’s College for the Deaf have the option of enriching their educational program by accessing teaching, interventions or adjustments as needed from the St. Mary’s College staff.

“Both St Mary’s and Marymede work together to support Luis’ education.” Says Jacquline. “Luis is supported by a Teacher of the deaf in the mainstream class but is also withdrawn throughout the week to work on his own individual goals in the St Mary’s College specialist classroom. St Mary’s also provide a Speech Therapist that works on Campus in which Luis attends twice a week. We receive feedback from all his teachers on a regular basis too, which is so important to us. At times the language barrier can be difficult for Luis to explain things, so this feedback and open communication is vital.”

The real benefit of the St. Mary’s College partnership with Marymede would not be fully experienced for the Fragale family until several years later however, with Luis younger sister Monique joining Prep in 2018, and the youngest member of the family Seth, joining the new Marymede Early Learning Centre in 2019.

The advantage of one, all inclusive Campus is where Marymede finds its real strength. “To have all three of our children at the one school, that meets all their needs is a blessing. We live only a short distance away, which is great for travel! There is a continuity in their education, they learn the same values and they are all part of the same community. They are each supported by dedicated and professional teachers who take the time to learn about our children and help them to be the very best they can be.” 

That continuity of learning will be on display even further in just a few years’ time as Luis transitions into Year 7 and the Secondary years where he will continue to be supported by St. Mary’s College for the Deaf. 

For now though, the focus remains firmly on 2019 with all three kids loving the opportunity to get into their uniform and arrive at School/Kindergarten together, as a family. “Our children are very happy. They feel a great sense of belonging and as parents that’s important to us and them.”

What is your role at the College?

This year I am teaching my Year 5 class (Hello 5C!), as well as Year 7 Humanities (Hello 7E!)

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently running with one of your classes?

This Term my Year 5 students will be investigating Australian History, which is one of my favourites! The Year 7’s and I will also be investigating history topics; Ancient China and Ancient Egypt (another of my favourites!)

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher?

The most rewarding part of being a teacher is the fantastic relationships I have with the students in my classes, and the other teacher that I work with! I love hearing everyone’s stories and watching my students learn and grow as people in the community.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Pizza

Favourite Movie/TV Show: The Wizard of Oz

Hidden Talent/Hobby or Something We May Not Know About You: Something you may not know about me, is that I’m really, really, really, really, really frightened of moths and butterflies.

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: GO THE TIGES! 

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:

1. My Grandmother Connie: She passed away when I was young. I often think about everything I’ve accomplished in my life, how much I would love to share those experiences with her, and how proud she would be of me.

2. Kim Kardashian: I’d really like to speak to her and hear what she has to say about her current tertiary studies in law and prison reform, as well as to see what she is actually like when the cameras aren’t filming

3. Lucille Ball: I’m a huge fan of ‘I Love Lucy’ and she was such a trail blazer back in her time. Would be amazing to chat to such an inspirational and boundary breaking woman!
