Learning and Teaching

St Columbkille’s Catholic Primary School is registered by the NSW Board of Studies (BOS) and is subject to the curriculum requirements of the Board.  The new Australian Curriculum will be implemented in 2013/14.

The myschool website provides parents and students with information on each school’s performance in NAPLAN. 

Religious Education curriculum stimulates and challenges students in their understanding of Scripture and Tradition, their engagement with symbol and ritual, and their ability to engage in critical thinking and moral reasoning.

The richness of the tradition of Catholic faith and culture and the best of contemporary pedagogies come together in the Religious Education curriculum which is supported by the To Know, Worship and Love books and resources

Requirements include an educational program based on, and taught in accordance with, the outcomes of Board of Studies syllabuses in six Key Learning Areas (KLAs) of English, Mathematics, Science & Technology, Human Society and its Environment, Creative Arts and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.
