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.
Our THRIVE approach to learning reflects our school vision and extends into the life of our classrooms. It describes how we believe children learn best and enables teachers to develop heightened connectivity in the learning experiences of students.
Each letter in THRIVE stands for what the staff, parents and children believe is important in learning.
T – Thinking critically,
H – High expectations,
R – Responsible decision making,
