Teaching and Learning at St Gerard's Catholic Primary School
Teaching and Learning
St Gerard’s Catholic Primary School Teaching and Learning philosophy is filled with faith.
St Gerard’s Catholic Primary School Teaching and Learning philosophy articulates the beliefs, values and pedagogical framework to enable educators to provide rigorous, meaningful and relevant learning experiences for all children. We aim to develop reflective and creative thinkers who become lifelong learners and are filled with faith. We believe in the education of the whole child, including academic, spiritual, physical, emotional and social development.
The Literacy and Numeracy Programs have been developed where specifically designed learning experiences assist all children in reaching their full potential. To support this, we set aside 90 minutes of Literacy Dedicated Time and a 60 minute Numeracy dedicated time in all classrooms each day. During this part of the day interruptions to the school program are minimised.
