Learning and Teaching

Timeless Teachings in a Changing World

We nurture the desire for learning in our students by providing a welcoming atmosphere and environment where each child is accepted, challenged and encouraged to grow as a person. At St. Mary’s we recognise the value of experiential learning and learning experiences that have purpose and meaning. We support families in the broader education of their children and guide them in a manner which gives them the opportunity to be problem solvers, make decisions, use initiative and persist when challenged.

The children and staff support an environment conducive to learning and to the well-being of all by being, Respectful, Responsible and Resilient. We also use the Restorative Justice and Berry Street Models as a means of  maximising student engagement so that they can achieve their personal and social potential through educational achievement.
