An Integrated Curriculum
Our philosophical stance on curriculum is based around an integrated curriculum model to enhance the learning of the students by making logical and authentic links between curriculum areas. All teaching staff are involved in developing units of work to develop an inquiry based and student centered approach to the classroom. A set of detailed curriculum mapping documents have been designed for teachers to ensure that the students learning is developed consistently and sequentially across all year levels.
We have highly skilled educators here at St Gregory’s College Junior School. Our teachers carefully track individual student progress, support and extend students to achieve specific and targeted learning goals. Teachers who meet our philosophical view on education (as seen above) and by being a collaborative team player with the child’s best interests at heart, will always be employed.
