Our Whole-school Pedagogy

Our Vision for Learning is 'Climbing the Tree of Life-long Learning'.

Strong Foundations

  • We believe learning should be engaging so that students are motivated to do their best.
  • We believe learning should be holistic, addressing the emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical development of each student.

Growing Together

  • We believe that learning should be inclusive.
  • We believe that learning should be authentic, making connections, local and global, which build on the strong foundations of Catholic values and ethics.

Branching Out

  • We believe that students should embrace and celebrate diversity in their learning.
  • We believe that students should be independent learners, demonstrating creative thinking, the construction of knowledge and the development of innovative products and processes.

Reaching New Heights

  • We believe that students should have the opportunity to demonstrate the application of their learning.
  • We believe that reflective practice is critical to student growth.
