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.

St Margaret Marys Catholic Primary School Randwick North Learning ApproachAt St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Primary School Randwick North our vision for learning is ‘Climbing the tree of life-long learning.’ This phrase captures our belief that learning:

  • continues for all of life
  • is best when built on strong foundations
  • occurs through collaboration and cooperation and
  • is best when we recognise that each learner follows different and unique pathways to achieve his/her personal best.
