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:
every student understanding their strengths and trusting their ability to monitor their own needs
student ownership of learning
differences among learners
co-operative group work and independent tasks
All students Kindergarten to Year 6 are the school leaders. A process is in place for electing team leaders.
Significant school leadership roles for students:
Students who aspire to, and accept, the role of School, Vice-Captain, Colour Captains and Student Representative Council Leaders must have a clear understanding of the role and the responsibilities associated with the position.
The School Leadership Program exists to encourage commitment, service, leadership by example, reading out to others within our school, and in the parish and broader community, and to provide further leadership development.
It is an expectation that leaders:
demonstrate empathy for others and has a strong moral conscience
enjoy school service and show initiative
relate well to other students
are responsible, organised and reliable.
