Your Child at the Centre

At St Augustine's Parish School, we view each child as a unique creation of God and hold the nourishment of the whole individual at the centre of everything we do.

Our educational philosophy is grounded in the Catholic faith, meets the requirements of the Australian curriculum and reflects respected contemporary educational and psychosocial research such as Positive Education and Restorative Practice.

Drawing on the Reggio-Emilia experience

The Reggio-Emilia experience also influences how your child will learn at our school.

This region in Italy uses a world-renowned approach to children's learning which recognises the child as competent and capable. They are scientists, builders, enquirers, problem solvers, explorers, painters, authors, wonderers and fixers.

When given the opportunity they can help the teacher construct their learning and come up with their own theories on the 'how', 'why' and 'what if' of everything.

Our skilled and dedicated teachers will work with your child to achieve outcomes in their learning and help them flourish as individuals.

In our Early years, you will see this evolve through:

  • Playful Learning
  • Play-based Learning
  • Inquiry based learning
  • Wondering questions

In our Primary Years you will see Inquiry Based Learning, questioning techniques and various other ways to develop your child's deeper thinking and problem-solving capabilities

 

"The meaning of 'knowing' has shifted from being able to remember and repeat information to being able to find and use it."

Herbert Simon, 1996 Nobel Laureate
