Learning and Teaching

“Education is a social process; education is growth; education is not preparation for life but is life itself.”

John Dewey

At St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School

We are a student centred school where our students are valued, build authentic relationships, develop a love of learning, have access to a comprehensive and contemporary curriculum and become responsible citizens and confident lifelong learners.

We build our students capacity to be great communicators, thinkers, collaborators and researchers who manage themselves effectively and are invested in the ownership and success of their learning.

We ensure a personalised approach to our student’s learning based on their strengths, challenges, interests, talents, experiences and background. Learning and Teaching is explicit and scaffolded to establish learning intentions, success criteria and feedback to ensure access and success for all.


Our Learning and Teaching programs are guided by the following curriculum document;

The Victorian Curriculum which outlines the essential knowledge, skills, understandings and dispositions that will prepare students for their present and their future.
