Learning in Kindy
Committed to Improve Learning
We are committed to improving student learning in all aspects of school life, especially in literacy and numeracy. To help us achieve this we:
Provide a Christian worldview to help students understand the world, as well as their purpose and place in it.
Use assessment and data to drive conversations with our students to understand how they best learn and identify their strengths, gifts and talents.
Develop a shared language and framework to articulate what successful learning at NBCS looks like.
Create and maintain an attractive and stimulating physical environment that supports and promotes learning, positive relationships, resilience, health and well-being.
Implementation of researched based interventions to support and enrich student learning.
Value and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, perspectives and histories.
A teaching model that includes a blend of explicit instruction and guided inquiry.
Following the NESA Curriculum, our key learning areas in Primary include English, Mathematics, PDHPE, HSIE, Science & Technology, Music and French. Within this framework we are flexible in our delivery of lessons to ensure content is exciting, enriching and engaging. Our specialist teachers deliver PDHPE, Music, French lessons, providing a depth and richness to our campus and often give us opportunities to connect with Secondary students and teachers within our learning community.
All in all, our hope is that every child who comes to NBCS loves learning, feels connected and part of a larger learning community that is able to make valuable contributions to the world around them. We hope that all of our students know that God has a purpose for their life and that they can fulfil their potential and capacity. This is an excellent foundation to build in Primary for our students so that transition into our Secondary school is able to be navigated smoothly.
