Teaching & Learning

At St Joseph’s Cathedral school the children are at the centre of all teaching and learning.  We use a rich curriculum to build each individual’s learning capacity and empower their learner agency. We make learning visible through our school wide learning progressions which help our learners know how they are going and where they need to go next. Our school’s Learning Process is used across all curriculum areas.


Our school’s vision for learning is based on Deeper Learning Pedagogies and research from Michael  Fullan’s “21st Century Skills: 6 C’s of Education”.  We have developed our own school Learner Qualities.
