Prep to Year 4 Campus: Laying the Foundations

Philosophy

Differentiation of the curriculum and learning activities is the Central philosophy of each year level’s daily learning and teaching. Individualised approaches to teaching and learning ensure that every student has the opportunity to learn at their current level of need rather than a ‘one size fits all approach’.

Learning and Teaching

Our teachers are focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for students in the areas of literacy and numeracy whilst nurturing and developing care and consideration for others. We understand that students learn more effectively when they are interested in the topic and it means something to them.

All teaching staff actively engage in Professional Learning in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy and are working to improve learning and teaching practices constantly.
