How our Children Learn

We believe children learn best ...

  • When they are motivated, interested and actively involved in their learning.
  • When they experience success through having their individual differences catered for and by working to the best of their abilities.
  • In a positive, affirming environment in which the experiences are fair, consistent and attainable.
  • If practical experiences are used in developing understanding.
  • In situations which encourage the development of communication skills.
  • When the school, family and community complement each other by working towards common goals.
  • When the fosters the development of the whole child - intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, creative and physical.
  • When we are witnesses to those Gospel values we profess as Christians, and model our life on the values we expect from others.
