Learning & Teaching Framework
Our Catholic school communities believe all learners are created in the image of God and viewed as unique individual learners who are supported to achieve their highest potential.
Our schools are committed to providing high quality learning and teaching through the implementation of the Australian Curriculum. Every student must develop strong literacy and numeracy skills in their earliest years of schooling, and go on to develop broad and deep knowledge across a range of curriculum areas.
• conﬁdent and creative individuals
• successful lifelong learners
• active and informed members of the community.
Teachers have high expectations of all learners and implement effective evidence-based pedagogy that leads to student growth.
We believe that learning happens best within supportive partnerships in which learners feel valued, connected and engaged in their learning. Schools create an inviting and inclusive learning environment that dignifies all learners.
