Teaching for Learning Policy

RATIONALE:

At St Patrick’s School, Koroit, we believe that for best learning to occur, teaching strategies must be planned remembering that all children are unique and have a need to belong and be accepted.  Children’s learning is influenced by many factors including learning styles, self esteem, prior experiences, relevance, interest, talents and stage of development.  Learning is an active process where children are involved and enjoy exploring and discovering for themselves.  All children can learn, particularly in a positive environment where they are encouraged to take risks and explore challenges.

SCRIPTURAL CONTEXT:

“The child grew and became strong, filled with wisdom; and the favour of God was upon him” 

(Luke 2:40 – 41)
