Parents are the first educators of their children and have the right and obligation to ensure an adequate education for their children consistent with their beliefs and values. As Catholic parents one of these obligations is to give the child the opportunity to be educated as a Catholic.
“Catholic education is based on an educational philosophy in which faith, culture and life are brought into harmony. …Of its nature, the Catholic school guides men and women to achieve human and Christian perfection and helps them to become mature in their faith.”
“Achieving the educational aims of the school should be an equal priority for teachers, students and families alike, each according to his/her role, always in the spirit of freedom and love.”
“We offer an inclusive and relevant curriculum to facilitate the growth of each individual, so that they may learn the skills of co-operation, negotiation, resourcefulness and independent thinking.”
St Stephen’s Primary School is a thriving, diverse community. Our staff develop strong partnerships with families to ensure that we are able to offer each child the personalised support required for them to achieve their full potential. A child’s need can be wide ranging requiring additional supports due to giftedness, new arrivals, English as an Additional Language (EAL) or due to a diagnosed or imputed disability. In these instances a Program Support Group (PSG) will be formed comprising of the parents, teacher, learning support officer and the Learning Diversity Leader who meet regularly to identify a child’s needs and develop effective practises to ensure each child achieves success.
