Introduction

Curriculum

At St Joseph’s, successful learning is a collaborative journey of curiosity and innovation where learners are empowered to question, seek solutions, make connections and take action in our world:

  • before quality learning can occur, students must feel safe.
  • all students can learn.
  • children learn cognitively, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually.
  • children learn in a variety of ways at varying rates, and from numerous sources.
  • children need to value learning and recognise their responsibility in the learning process.
  • there needs to be an emphasis on basic skills of numeracy and literacy as the foundation that underpins the development of all other curriculum areas.
  • there needs to be a strong emphasis on the development of life skills.
  • learning needs to be challenging and enjoyable.

At St Joseph’s we teach children not subjects.

St Joseph’s curriculum, as with all Victorian schools is based on the Victorian Curriculum.
