The overarching goal for learning at St Benedict's is to educate all to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative and confident, active and informed learners, empowered to shape and enrich our world.
At St Benedict's we use the Australian Curriculum to make informed decisions about what our students should be taught. Our teachers collaboratively plan teaching and learning opportunities in alignment with the curriculum in ways that best meet students' needs and interests. We fully implement all Learning Areas of the Australian Curriculum from Prep to Year 6:
Early Years Contexts for Learning are used in Prep to Year 2 to provide a balanced teaching, learning and assessment program that encompass investigations, play, routines and transitions, real-life situations and focused learning and teaching.
Information computer learning technology (ICLT) is an integral part of teaching and learning at St. Benedict's. We give each child the opportunity to develop appropriate skills through specific classroom teaching and learning within the Technology Curriculum and by integrating the use of a variety of technologies in the contexts of other learning areas, to prepare them for a society where ICLT is present in every facet of life.
St Benedict’s teaching and learning is informed and guided by the following:
