Our learning and teaching program is based on Australian Curriculum and Queensland Studies Authority syllabi. We strive to maximise learning within a quality teaching and learning environment. Teachers and staff recognise the individuality of each student and place the needs of the learner at the centre of their teaching. A number of supporting documents provide values, beliefs and goals for quality learning and teaching. The Melbourne Declaration outlines two overarching goals for schooling in Australia:
Goal 1: Australian schooling promotes equity and excellence
Goal 2: All young Australians become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens
Brisbane Catholic Education’s Learning Teaching Framework is designed to support teachers in the planning of learning and teaching and underpins our school Values for Learning and Teaching.
The learning experiences and programs provide for differences in learning abilities and guide individuals to their own level of achievement by allowing opportunities for all children to achieve their full potential in all areas.
The formal school curriculum takes in the following Learning Areas: -
Humanities and Social Sciences (History/Geography)
Health & Physical Education
Cultural Literacy Years 4 - 6 Japanese
Supporting the Educational needs
Q of A accepts students with a wide range of abilities. Encouragement is given to promote individual excellence and self-esteem by enabling students to achieve a level of mastery commensurate with their own abilities and with their particular stage of development. The Catholic Special Education Services provide specialised services and personnel to meet the needs of the students and to support their teachers.
