Our Lady of the Nativity Vision Statement

At Our Lady of the Nativity we aim to deliver a curriculum and design learning experiences that maintain the integrity of the crucial core skills – reading, writing and numeracy – while creating a vibrant learning experience that the children feel is important to them now and into the future (Gerver, 2010). Our core beliefs about contemporary learning in a Catholic context are that:

  • Learning is personalised, learner centred and caters for the uniqueness and diversity within our learning community.
  • Learning is a dynamic, organic and purposeful process. Our mission is to ignite individual passions and equip students for their learning and life journeys.
  • High expectations, and an awareness of ourselves as learners, drive us to reach our full potential.
  • Learners are innovators and creative thinkers who must be empowered and motivated to take responsibility for their own learning and be active participants in the world.
  • All learning journeys and discoveries are recognised, valued and celebrated.

Powerful Learning statement

We believe powerful learning is engaging, collaborative and student driven.

Feedback and reflection will promote challenging, purposeful, relevant learning that is transferable and life-long.
