At St. Martin of Tours, we focus on Contemporary Learning to provide a broad, challenging and inclusive curriculum for 21st Century learning. Our school aims to provide rich learning experiences to allow children to succeed and develop an interest in lifelong learning.
Our current curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum, the guiding document for all Victorian schools. For more information, visit our Victorian Curriculum web page.
Through the Inquiry approach, opportunities are provided for students to pose questions about their world. Within a Contemporary learning framework, there is an emphasis on group interaction, questioning, reflective thinking and taking action. Student voice is also encouraged to enable richer learning experiences to occur. The use of current technologies also enables students to make connections with others across the globe. The areas of Indigenous Perspectives, Asian Studies and Sustainability are integrated within Inquiry learning topics.
At St. Martin of Tours our Inquiry approach is based on the following concepts;
Celebration of learning
The school community are invited to join in 'Celebrations of Learning' where students can showcase their learning. The classrooms are open for parents and families to engage with the students.
