The Curriculum offered at Holy Name Primary School is designed to enhance the students in all areas of their learning journey. We strive to have students take an active part in their own learning through developing strong personal skills that develop their management capabilities. Embedded throughout the curriculum are the skills of cooperation, problem solving, innovation, self-direction and the capacity to relate to others and manage change.
Holy Name Primary School’s curriculum encompasses a range of Contemporary processes. We are aiming for our students to become 21st Century Learners, engaged in the world that we live in and seeing their learning as important for them to develop understandings about themselves and how they learn. We believe our students should be supported to construct their own deep understanding by building on their current knowledge and making connections through conceptualizing, reflecting and analyzing. This is a continual process where the students are engaged in their own learning across all Learning Domains. Students are continually setting goals for their own learning and reflecting on these, therefore creating a personalized learning environment in each classroom, where each students needs are met.
Students and teachers have a mutual respect for each other. The learning environment at Holy Name Primary School is one that is safe, orderly and positive, allowing for students to be engaged in a range of experiences.
