Teaching and Learning

Religious Education and the values of the Catholic Church and the Marist ethos inform the attitudes and behaviours of staff, children and families. The Religious Education curriculum and opportunities for faith expression are essential components of daily life at the Primary Campus.

The academic program is in a very interesting transitional phase with the introduction of the Australian Curriculum. The students have many and varied opportunities to develop transferable skills, knowledge and creativity in all aspects of their educational program. The Library is an area where children have access to a wide variety of resources which underpin the teaching and learning program.

The focus in the teaching and learning program is developing thinking skills through a differentiated approach, where different learning styles and approaches are employed. All staff members are assisted in keeping abreast of recent research and practice relating to Primary education.

Technology in the form of a mobile device is now an essential tool for the students to engage in 21st Century learning.  The College, in partnership with each family, ensures the students have access to a 1:1 program for home and school learning.

The classroom teachers and the students are closely supported by the Enrichment teacher, the Support teacher and the Coordinator of Special Learning needs to ensure the teaching and learning programs meet the breadth of learning styles of the students.
