Reflecting our vision to ‘connect family, faith and education’, we recognise families as providing a child’s first and ongoing experience of love, faith and learning and, therefore, nurture the partnership between families, the community and learning.
The college’s learning and physical design have been based on the core belief which have at their centre, a focus on student centred teaching and learning, lifelong learning, the interconnectedness of knowledge and the importance of human communication in all its forms.
At Nazareth, we believe teaching and learning is holistic, inclusive, life-giving and life-long. Teaching and learning supports both the academic and personal development of each child. Preparing students for their future is increasingly important in developing thriving and capable learners for a world that God desires.
We want students to develop agency over their learning – so, as educators it was agreed that we needed to explicitly teach these skills for success, as there can sometimes be assumed knowledge. With this at the heart of our endeavours, we began our journey of developing the Nazareth Capabilities – Skills for Success program.
The Nazareth Capabilities help all young people thrive throughout their lives – from the early years, during schooling and beyond. At Nazareth, we are committed to the long-term implementation of the Nazareth Capabilities; Skills for Success.
