Curriculum

Everything we do in our school is about learning and we believe this happens within and beyond the classroom. Our learning program is shaped by the eight learning areas in The Australian Curriculum along with Religious Education. A detailed outline of the learning areas can be found on the Australian Curriculum website.

We believe we learn through interaction with others, therefore children are provided with opportunities to work together, to collaborate and connect with the wider community.  Children learn best when they feel safe, have ownership of their learning and when experiences are purposeful and relevant.  We believe that it is vital for student growth that we regularly seek and interpret evidence to inform our teaching, the learner and parents/carers. 

We use data to inform decisions about our learning design. Teachers draw on a range of formal and informal learning data to understand where children are up to in their learning journey and where they need to progress next. In this way, we ensure learning growth each year for all children.

Our specialist learning areas are Physical Education Drama, Music and Languages – Italian. We access specialist sporting clinics each term to give the children a range of experiences. Our students alternate between Dance Sports and Aquatics lessons. All children belong to a house team and each year we hold our Sports Day at Mortlock Oval, this is a great community day and we warmly invite all members of the St Therese community to join us.

At St Therese, our highly professional staff is committed to providing the best education for your child.
