Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School Rockdale we aim to deliver a contemporary curriculum that:

  • provides high quality learning opportunities;
  • takes place in an optimum learning environment;
  • caters for all students; and,
  • is relevant to and makes connections with the students’ world.
