Inherent to Nazareth is the fostering of a strong sense of community from your first connection. We recognise that families and our community share the responsibility for children's learning and wellbeing.
Our curriculum offers a full range of learning opportunities and multiple pathways to recognize your child’s aspirations, interests and skills. Our teaching and learning is designed to prepare our young people for the world of the future. Whilst technology plays an integral part in our highly engaging learning activities, the fundamental literacy and numeracy skills required for success are taught through both contemporary and traditional methods.
Students are exposed to the full range of the Australian Curriculum, including Religious Education. Specialist teachers in Italian, The Arts, Music and Physical Education enrich the offerings to all students. We encourage cultural and linguistic skills to foster inter-cultural connectedness.
Our R-6 students have access to integrated information technology in every learning space, including Notebooks, iPads, Smart TVs, and Interactive Whiteboards. All students in Year 5 learn an instrument and participate in a Year 5 concert band as part of their curriculum.
Students participate in a wide range of cross-campus activities, opportunities which prepare them with the skills and confidence required to reach their full potential as they move into the secondary school setting.
We offer a range of Intervention programs such as MiniLit, MacqLit and Catch Up Numeracy. MiniLit and MacqLit are evidence-based, explicit and systematic in the teaching of early literacy and reading skills and are offered to students who require additional support in their development of reading. Catch Up Numeracy is a structured one-to-one intervention program for learners who find numeracy difficult, focussing on the 12 foundational areas of numbers.
Our teaching and learning support both the academic and personal development of each child. A focus on the human capabilities of collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking, identity, and questioning and understanding ourselves, ensures we prepare students to become thriving people for the world God desires.
