By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

Our school learning pedagogy (teaching practices) are based on current research into effective teaching and learning. We are using the work of Lyn Sharratt and Michael Fullan and the 14 Parameters of school improvement and teacher effectiveness to develop a whole school approach to the ongoing improvement of classroom practice.
