The Learning Journey
Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese schools foster imagination and innovation from the early years to Year 12 and beyond.
It’s all about preparing students to take their place in a changing world
With a strong focus on learning how to learn, our schools prepare students for the workplaces of the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to work collaboratively.
Teachers guide students to engage in deep learning that stretches beyond traditional academic subjects to embrace the arts, music, drama, design, innovative technologies and sport.
Increasingly greater responsibility for their own learning is given to students as they grow in readiness and make connections to the world we live in.

Kindy to Year 4 (Inquiry)

Years 5 to 8 (Connections)
In these important middle years, students grow in their independence to think for themselves and grow in their confidence as they are supported to engage with their world around them. Through this period they are developing their identity as creative, critical and reflective thinkers.
Years 9 to 12 (Opportunity)
This stage empowers students to have the courage to invent their own future As students’ pathways and experiences extend beyond the school gates, learners are positioned to flourish in their lives beyond school.
