Learning and Teaching

The learning and teaching team works to maximize the learning growth and wellbeing of all young people in our Catholic schools by inspiring, informing and engaging our communities in learning.

Our priority is to promote, model and build communities of learners who experience engaging, purposeful learning and pedagogy. The promotion of quality curriculum and assessment practices in our Catholic schools underpins this priority.
 A Framework for Learning
Our collective purpose as educators is to promote, model and build communities of learners that experience engaging and purposeful learning and pedagogy within relationships which support and challenge learning growth.

This Framework for Learning is a pro-active vision for a preferred future that accommodates the changing context of K-12 student learning. This framework builds on earlier commitments outlined in Today’s Children Tomorrow’s Adults (1998). The intention of the Framework is to provide a point of engagement for reflection, dialogue and professional learning that supports the range of purposeful pedagogical practices within a learning community. The Framework is to indicate the key dimensions of our learning and teaching activity and the relationship between them.
