Quality teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do at St. Charles Borromeo. The classrooms are alive with learning. The students are engaged, focused and happy in a safe and productive learning environment. We teach each individual child from their point of need and make authentic links to the global community. It is our vision to see the children by Grade 5/6 being able to select tools that best represent their thinking and learning. To achieve this our children are exposed to a variety of technology and higher order thinking curriculum.
Primary learning includes whole-class, group and individual activities designed to develop an inquiring mind and teach basic learning skills needed for schooling and later life.
We are dedicated to developing children with a healthy mind, body and spirit who develop a love of life long learning within a Catholic Faith setting.
Our approach in the classroom is to provide each child with the opportunity to reach their potential in a supported and inspiring contemporary learning setting. Our contemporary learning spaces are of the highest quality, having recently been constructed. Literacy and Numeracy are high priority learning areas, knowing that the skills and concepts developed during classroom programs strengthen learning across the whole curriculum. For extra support, we have a Wellbeing Leader, Literacy Leader and a reading Recovery teacher as well as a Math’s Leader.
Our children are able to express themselves through our energetic art, music, sport, language lessons (Italian) and Values programs. Our learning environment is staffed by very caring and supportive staff who value the partnerships they have with parents in their child’s learning.
