Innovative Teaching & Learning

At St Mary’s we promote a strong focus on using our school site as a teacher. Students engage positively with their environment, connecting knowledge that they learn online and in the classroom in such areas as sustainability, ecological awareness and environmental stewardship with a range of hands-on and real-world learning experiences in the school outdoor learning areas.

Each child is equipped with an individual technology device, a Chromebook. While technology devices are valuable learning tools we believe that the true pathways towards powerful learning and living a good life are found through a focus on the range of children’s positive human qualities including kindness, creativity, curiosity, persistence, gratitude, playfulness and leadership.
