For Students

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 

Student Leaders

All students Kindergarten to Year 6 are the school leaders. However the following outlines the process for electing team leaders and their roles and responsibilities.

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 their role and the responsibilities associated with the role.
