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.
COVID‑19 response to Remote Learning
Our Continuity Learning Plan is designed to to help ensure that processes within our school system can continue during this challenging times. While we are engaged with remote learning, the school has a clear plan to ensure that all aspects of teaching and learning are addressed in this new mode of presentation.
At Our Lady of Fatima Primary School, our school wide Vision for Learning drives our contemporary pedagogy which aims to enable our children to have the knowledge and skills to become lifelong learners.
Underpinned by our school motto of ‘Serviam’ (I will serve), it provides a broad framework for the development of learning experiences that promote and nurture knowledge and skills beyond the classroom. The school’s Vision for Learning aligns with the SCS Authentic Learning Statement.
