Students at the Centre of Learning

We believe that our students are at the centre of our work as a Catholic school. Our student–centred classrooms require students to be active learners responsible for their actions and self-directed in their thinking. In a student-centred classroom we value:

  • Each student understanding their strengths and trusting their ability to monitor their own needs
  • Higher-order thinking
  • Deep understanding
  • Student ownership of learning
  • Differences among learners
  • Leadership
  • Cooperative group work and independent tasks
  • Respectful relationships
