Learning & Teaching

 Curriculum and learning at St Rita's is developed using the Australian Curriculum http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/. It is ongoing, data informed and teachers work in professional learning teams to consistently monitor and track students' learning. Curriculum planning takes place within the beliefs and values of our Vision and Mission statements and seeks to achieve the Goals for Education outlined in the Alice Springs (Mparntwe) Education Declaration (December 2019). The declaration has two distinct but interconnected goals:

  • Goal 1:  The Australian Education System promotes excellence and equity.
  • Goal 2:  All young Australians become: confident and creative individuals, successful life-long learners, active and informed members of the community.

At  St Rita's Catholic Primary School, the Brisbane Catholic Education Learning Framework is central as all learning and teaching is based on these beliefs and values. We educate all to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative and confident, active and informed learners empowered to shape and enrich our changing world.
