Learning and Teaching - Learning and Teaching

St Anne’s aims to provide a balanced education in a Catholic faith community. Our curriculum focuses on catering for the individual needs of our children.

This is achieved through regular assessment that is used to drive explicit and rich teaching and learning experiences that build upon the children’s existing knowledge. All of our children are on a learning continuum and we are committed to supporting them in their learning journey.

Learning at St Anne’s develops critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration skills. It supports children to see themselves as lifelong learners. We know that school twenty years from now cannot resemble the school of today and still expect to be relevant. Therefore at St Anne’s we are committed to all elements of learning – Philosophy, Language and Literature, History, Art, Music, Mathematics and Science. These all contribute to our presence in the world as personal, active citizens.

Specialist classes consist of Italian, Physical Education, Computer Technology and Performing Arts.
