The St Aidan's approach to learning

At St Aidan's we:

  • promote educational and personal excellence in our students as they grow as whole people, attending to their intellectual, spiritual, physical, aesthetical and emotional development

  • believe that quality education enriches and empowers the individual to move towards broader lifestyle choices and enables them to utilise their God given gifts for the good of the community

  • believe that children need to look to the future with hope, aware of God's loving guidance in their lives

  • base our educational practice on the sound educational research of the Board of Studies Key Learning Areas

  • use flexible, innovative and creative teaching practices, which cater for students' differing learning styles and needs

  • view technology as an essential tool to assist learning in all areas

  • encourage a sense of responsibility and justice in the students promoting positive relationships between students

  • initiate outreach programs to encourage a sense of global responsibility for the less fortunate

  • believe learning is a continuous process and a lifelong journey.

Key Learning Areas

As with most aspects of learning in life, learning at school is not something that can easily be separated into different categories.

Teachers are aware for example, that when a child is working with a group on a science experiment, he or she might well be operating and working in a variety of ways—questioning and explaining, making, sharing and writing observations, drawing graphs, calculating results, consulting references and many more.

For this reason, learning and teaching is often integrated across several curriculum areas rather than taught as separate and discrete subjects. Class teachers ensure that their teaching program follows the guidelines set by the NSW Board of Studies and covers all curriculum areas—Religious Education and the six Key Learning Areas mandated for primary schools and specified in the NSW Education Reform Act (1990).

These areas are:

  • English
    Reading, Writing, Talking and Listening
  • Mathematics
    Number, Space, Measurement, Patterns and Algebra

  • Science and Technology
  • Human Society and Its Environment
  • Creative and Practical Arts
    Music, Visual Arts, Craft, Drama
  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education
