St Anne's provides an engaging and rich curriculum that promotes independence and self-motivation. We aim to develop confident learners who explore the world around them and can reflect on their personal learning journey with insight and honesty.
We foster resilience and persistence in an environment where the community plays an active daily role, helping to nurture the whole child and develop a strong sense of self. Students are encouraged to think critically, collaborate with staff to set personal learning goals and make ethical choices.
Our staff work collegially to create learning opportunities that instil global understandings that will stay with our students as they move into the world. The Victorian Curriculum is the foundation of our programs and we align our Scope and Sequences in Literacy, Numeracy and cross-curricular areas from P-6. We work with the Horizons of Hope to foster deep teaching and powerful and animated learning. Our Inquiry approach connects big concepts to the Catholic Social Teachings and is underpinned by the Pedagogy of Encounter and the E5 instructional model. We strongly focus on collaborative learning and critical thinking.
All educators engage in ongoing professional learning, with a focus on coaching and mentoring that is supported by our strong leadership team. We are a data-driven school who prioritise time to discuss student progress in order to differentiate our teaching. This way we can target student learning at point of need. We share a vision for student learning and teaching practices across all classes and see student learning as everyone’s responsibility as part the ‘St Anne’s Way’.
St. Anne's is proud of our whole school approach to remote learning during Covid 19 over the past two years. Our continued collaborative approach between students, families and teachers, and the sensible and safe approach we take, has been second to none. We continue to support our students in the classroom and during their IT lessons each fortnight.
Our Year 6 students will be obtaining their digital licences which will hold them in good stead heading into secondary school next year.
We also have nominated Digi-Tech Captains who are skilled up in monitoring devices, assist in coding club and attend to technolgy care and control at school assemblies and community events.
