Teaching and Learning

At Our Lady Star of the Sea we teach children, not grades.

Our school aims to:

  • help children grow in awareness of self, others, environment and faith community
  • assist children in the forming of Christian attitudes in the context of the traditions and doctrines of the Catholic Church
  • help children acquire skills and become information literate
  • foster an enthusiasm for learning, leading to the development of life-long, independent and reflective learners
  • provide a firm foundation in Religious Education, English, Mathematics, communication and thinking skills
  • focus on environmental sustainability
    At Our Lady Star of the Sea, the curriculum content encompasses the Victorian Curriculum and the resources provided through the Catholic Archdiocese of Sale’s publication; To Know, Worship & Love.
  • The Victorian Curriculum commences at the Foundation level and continues through all levels in Primary Schools
  • Knowledge, skills and behaviours are developed across all levels to meet the needs of all students
