Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.
COVID‑19 response to Remote Learning
Our Continuity Learning Plan is designed to to help ensure that processes within our school system can continue during this challenging times. While we are engaged with remote learning, the school has a clear plan to ensure that all aspects of teaching and learning are addressed in this new mode of presentation.
Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School Kensington’s whole school pedagogy is underpinned by our Vision for Learning. We believe that learners flourish when they act with purpose; they pursue growth with a healthy ambition; they engage in collaboration; they learn from their mistakes, develop grit and perseverance and they are people of service.
We encourage our students to be active participants in their own learning and challenge them to become independent learners by setting their own learning goals, self reflecting and being assessors of their own learning. We recognise and cater for a range of learning abilities and student readiness through a differentiated curriculum and flexible grouping which encompasses gifted education and diverse learning.
