Learning Journey

St John Bosco School believes that relationships are at the heart of quality teaching and learning. We value each child with dignity and respect and celebrate their own identity and uniqueness.

Our Image of the Child

At St John Bosco we:

  • foster each child’s individual strengths, abilities and interests
  • acknowledge children as citizens of the world with rights and responsibilities
  • share in the responsibility with families to support and achieve the best possible learning outcomes
  • learn in ‘togetherness’ with the children, exploring their prior knowledge and using their ideas to inform curriculum decisions
  • honour student agency by providing children with ample opportunities to actively engage in the processes of learning, rather than focusing solely on end products
