Our learning beliefs

At Our Lady of the Nativity Primary we are committed to establishing a quality learning environment. Our students engage in meaningful and engaging educational tasks that help them develop skills to become independent learners.

What do we teach?

The Diocese of Parramatta, with the guidance of the Bishop, sets our Religious Education program, Sharing our Story, in partnership with the Catholic Education Office.

Staff design differentiated learning programs according to the learning needs of the students. Students with specific learning needs, including the gifted and talented, are catered for within these programs. Our curriculum is designed around the key learning areas described by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA):

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Creative Arts
  • History and Geography
  • Science and Technology
  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education

At Our Lady of the Nativity, we believe this is best achieved through making connections to the students’ real world and by teaching in an integrated, holistic manner. Our curriculum framework and assessment strategies reflect this.
