Educating for the future
The learning journey at St Anthony's honours the developmental stages in a student’s life. Based on leading educational research and the best of today’s technologies, we prepare students for the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to lead and work both independently and collaboratively.
The key learning areas
We follow the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) approved curriculum in the key learning areas of:
As a Catholic school we also have a strong religious dimension that runs through all the KLAs and is also formally recognised as the KLA of Religious Education.
St Anthony's students take part in formal Religious Education every day, based on the new Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese curriculum that is relevant to our students and to the world they live in.
At St Anthony’s we use an ‘Inquiry’ learning approach across Key Learning Areas.
Teachers plan learning sequences that are guided by both curriculum requirements and student questions, in order to engage students in exploration, investigation and action that is purposeful and engaging.
We believe that in addition to learning content, all learners need to develop qualities that will make them powerful and critical lifelong learners. These include being creative, reflective and collaborative. We develop learning experiences that empower students to develop these qualities.
As the building blocks for all learning, we have a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy throughout our learning and teaching programs.
Our students do 100 minutes of literacy related learning every day. This involves a balanced model of reading, writing and speaking and listening learning that includes teacher modelling, teacher guided instruction and independent work.
60 minutes each day is allocated for numeracy related learning throughout our school. Our students consolidate core number skills through daily warm ups. They are challenged to explore and extend mathematical understanding through rich, open tasks that are then reflected upon through teacher directed instruction.
We offer a varied curriculum that is engaging and relevant!
