Learning should be an exploration of the students’ world from the ELC to Year 12.
At St Paul’s, the educational philosophy underpinning our teaching and learning program, is that learning should be an exploration of the students’ world from the ELC to Year 12. This engagement and exploration leads to learning that builds on important foundation skills and extends students’ emerging talents.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that caters for a range of student needs and abilities. Lessons are presented through different combinations of student groupings, utilising a range of teaching strategies and catering for different learning styles in order to maximise student learning.
Underpinned by the standards of the Australian Curriculum, the learning at each year level reflects the developmental stage of students with specialised programs designed to enhance their learning experience. The core subjects remain a priority, however a broad range of electives support our students to build an academic program which reflects their individual interests.
Our specialised Year 9 Thinking and Learning Program prepares students for senior school years and continues their education by taking a multidisciplinary approach and encourages students to reflect on their own learning. Further information on our range of subjects being offered in 2015 is available in our Course Guides.
