Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
Every child’s needs are known and their passions are nurtured – the academic, the emotional, the physical and the spiritual.
We support the Reggio Emilia philosophy through self-guided learning with the principles of respect, responsibility and community, which encourages curiosity, investigation, discovery and enquiring minds.
We ensure quality teaching and rich learning tasks through:
- Authentic learning experiences embedded into our practice to equip students with the skills to be effective lifelong learners.
- Personalised learning and opportunities to exercise choice as they pursue areas of passion and interest.
- Learning focusing on the development of critical and creative thinking skills.
