Learning & Teaching

Learning Villages

Over the next five years, four Learning Villages are being developed to serve both as the learning and pastoral base for each child, as well as a professional learning community for the staff team.  Each Village will be the focal point of our improvement initiatives as we work to ensure quality teaching and deep learning for every child.

The goal of each Learning Village is to engage children, their families and the school staff  to work together as a learning community that is dedicated to the creation of a culture of learning excellence.

The design of each Learning Village will allow for a variety of learning environments that range from traditional teaching spaces to informal collaborative teaching modes, striving for educational excellence in an inspiring and motivating atmosphere.

Innovative and flexible design will promote a variety of teaching methods encouraging the growth of the individual’s learning and development in different ways and at different rates.

Each Learning Village has been named after an important geographical setting that Christ visited during his pilgrimage on earth. 

Prep: Jordan Village

Years 1 & 2: Nazareth Village

Years 3 & 4: Bethany Village

Years 5 & 6: Emmaus Village

Community Hub: Jericho Village

Within each Village we are establishing a unique personality that, inspired by the example of Christ, confidently articulates a vibrant expression of faith, life and culture.

Each Learning Village provides a safe, caring and stimulating environment that provides an educational experience that enables students to be active learners, to communicate effectively, to solve authentic problems, to think critically, to work in teams and to act responsibly.
