The St Gabriel Centre will be open and ready for teaching and learning at the beginning of Term 1, 2021. A short 6 - minute walk across the river from the Flinders Park campus, it will be a dedicated centre for our Year 12's. Nazareth's continued growth has enabled our Community to reimagine learning opportunities for senior students.
A recording of the recent Community Forum will be available shortly.

In preparing for term 2, the Technology and Food (TEF) teachers have been busy in the kitchen adapting their curriculum to provide teaching and learning experiences for the students as we shift to online learning.
To ensure students have access to skill development, knowledge and understanding, the TEF staff have been engaging in Flipped Learning. During the last week of Term 1 a selection of delicious recipes utilising a variety of cooking methods and ingredients were filmed as video demonstrations to allow students to understand key recipe processes within the home environment. Hopefully, this will inspire students to undertake some of these recipes and cook supervised with their families.
Research has shown that cooking helps mental health as it can be a creative outlet. It is a way to channel energy, can be used as a distraction, and to express emotions through a different medium.
Here are some of their beautiful creations.
You’re welcome to try cooking these yourself by downloading the following recipes:
DID YOU KNOW that the Chaplaincy program continues to be strongly supported by Catholic Education South Australia (CESA) and our Nazareth Catholic Community? At the end of last year Nazareth, as well as 60 other CESA schools, was successful in obtaining further funding for the 2020 – 2022 round.
We value space because of its power to organise, to promote pleasant relationships between people, to create a handsome environment, provide changes, promotes choices and activity, and its potential for sparking all kinds of social, affective and cognitive learning. (Loris Malaguzzi).
The educators and children are excited that our sandpit makeover is nearing completion, we can’t wait to explore! Simon and his team from Climbing Trees have designed and constructed an exciting and inviting area for the children to engage in play that complies with the Early Years Learning Framework, National Quality Standards and the National Regulations. Learning environments are one of the key practices from the Early Years Learning Frameworks.
In 2018 the Nazareth Catholic Community will be embracing the theme "Listen with an Open Heart".
This theme is particularly significant for our Community as we commit to provide a contemporary and loving experience of our Catholic tradition whilst recognising and celebrating the diversity within our community. To 'Listen with an Open Heart' we are called to focus on supporting, listening to, and learning from, all members of our community whilst embracing the loving and compassionate charisma of our local parishes, which are operated by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart congregation. In this, the Year of Youth - as proclaimed by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference - our theme specifically calls us to focus on how our Community can help accompany young people in discerning God's calling for their lives.
