Contemporary learning preparing students for whatever the future holds.
EVERY CHILD IS DIFFERENT AND SO IS HIS OR HER LEARNING JOURNEY
Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. St Bernadette's welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.
Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.
After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!
INSPIRED LEARNING AND TEACHING STARTS WITH HIGHLY MOTIVATED AND PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS
Like you, we know that great teachers make a real difference in a child’s life. Our teachers are lifelong learners too and regularly undertake professional development to keep up to date with current best practice in education. Our expert teachers will tailor teaching to meet your child at their point of need, track how they are progressing, and respond with extra support when needed.
OUR LEARNING JOURNEY
The Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese Learning Journey honours the developmental stages in a student’s life. Based on leading educational research and the best of today’s technologies, we prepare students for the workplaces of the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to work collaboratively.
OUR LEARNING JOURNEY
SUPPORTING STUDENT LEARNING
We understand that students learn and develop skills at different rates. Some students require the additional support of our Diversity Team, a team dedicated to assisting students to develop skills and strategies that will enable them to better access regular classroom learning. Support services include:
- matching available support programs to students' needs
- administering specialist intervention programs ( e.g. Reading Recovery, Extending Mathematical Understanding)
- liaising with and supporting families
- managing the Personalised Plan process for students with additional needs.
OUR LEARNING SPACES
The learning spaces at St Bernadette's are designed to enhance the learning opportunities of our students. From the latest technology to flexible seating options and adaptable class sizes, students will learn how to work both independently and as part of a small or large group depending on the task at hand.
Our library is a place of exploration and inquiry. Through access to our library resources and services, students develop a range of learning capabilities that thrive on curiosity, creativity, imagination and innovation.
ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES WITH LEARNING PARTNERS
Our learning approach makes a welcome space for parents, carers and other valued partners to engage with our learners in a deeply personalised, anywhere, anytime approach to learning.
As part of a system of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta Diocese, we also benefit from formal agreements with many institutions that form a wide network of strategic relationships and collaborations to advance research, teaching and innovation in Catholic schools across Greater Western Sydney.
