At St Aloysius Catholic Primary School, Chisholm we believe our students will best experience success through contemporary evidence-based learning and teaching. This modern learning approach is personalised, responding to the learning needs, interests and experiences of each student. We are flexible in our use of personnel, resources, learning spaces and the ways that students can demonstrate their learning.
Contemporary learning aims to empower students with the knowledge, skills and capacities to respond creatively to the challenges of their world. Through a variety of whole school initiatives, all students have opportunities to make a positive difference for those less fortunate and their environment.
Our passionate and professional teachers work in teams to create a sense of belonging and purpose that strengthens the learning culture of the school. They promote high expectations, respect, diversity and difference, enabling learning for all students. Alternative play options are available daily for all children in the form of a wide variety of lunch clubs. These include STEM, coding club, garden club, dance club, Mini Vinnies, choir clubs and meditation.
Contemporary learning is different to the way many parents of today’s students were taught. It offers teachers and students many more options than the old textbook-driven approach to teaching.
Learners thrive in environments that are safe, supportive and secure. Flexible and intentionally developed learning environments encourage innovation and inquiry and help create a sense of belonging and purpose that strengthens the learning culture. These environments are stimulating and appropriately resourced. They promote high expectations and respect diversity and difference, facilitating learning for all students. Adaptive learning environments have no conventional boundaries because, being ICT rich, they are connected to the world beyond the classroom.
