At Mary’s Catholic Primary School teachers and students engage in diverse activities that provide opportunities for students to enhance their learning and achieve the outcomes of the Victorian Curriculum and To Live in Christ Jesus, the Sale Diocese Religious Education Curriculum.
Our focus is on building teacher expertise and delivering a curriculum that caters for the diversity of students in every class. Professional Learning Teams respond to evidence of student learning and curriculum documents to plan exciting and challenging learning tasks for students. Being technologically well-resourced, at St. Mary’s teachers and students creatively integrate Information and Communication Technology across curriculum areas.
The provision of the school’s curriculum is arranged so that each class has a two-hour literacy block & a one-hour numeracy block each day. The other learning domains such as Religious Education, Science, Humanities, Technology and Health are taught using an inquiry and integrated approach.
By using an inquiry and integrated approach, we are able to provide learning experiences for our children that are not only engaging but also allow for the development of skills such as: problem solving, creative thinking, critical thinking, the generation of new ideas, the ability to analyse and evaluate information and to plan for the future. All these skills will be required by your child in the future, for life in the 21st century.
