Learning Philosophy


Creating engaged, resilient learners

At Holy Family Primary, we provide a safe, welcoming, stimulating environment as a prerequisite to productive learning. We believe that students construct meaning through exploration and experimentation, through questioning, and with the experience of appropriate learning tasks, activities and technologies. Teachers facilitate children’s learning by:

  • addressing the literacy needs of the ESL learner
  • catering for the individual needs and learning styles of their students
  • providing positive modelling experiences in the classroom
  • encouraging students to reflect and act upon their learning experiences
  • creating a classroom environment that is well-managed with defined expectations and routines
  • fostering a student’s self esteem by facilitating responsibility for their own learning
  • providing constructive and encouraging feedback that fosters future learning

Our teachers engage in continuous professional development to maintain relevant and effective teaching methods and to upgrade skills, including areas such as information technology.

We encourage a learning dialogue between parents, teachers and students, to raise awareness of students’ learning needs and to establish routines that support learning.
