Stu­dents grow strong in faith and love

Southern Telegraph - - Welcome To... Baldivis -

Mother Teresa Catholic Col­lege opened in 2014 and next year looks for­ward to see­ing boys and girls en­rolled from kinder­garten to Year 5.

The col­lege hopes even­tu­ally to ex­pand and pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion for stu­dents from pre-kinder­garten to Year 12.

The col­lege fea­tures award-win­ning, ar­chi­tec­turally strik­ing, rammed earth learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties that have been built to max­imise stu­dent learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment.

These fa­cil­i­ties in­clude state-of-the-art tech­nol­ogy and re­sources as well as imag­i­na­tive out­side na­ture-play ar­eas, which are ben­e­fi­cial to learn­ing through play for stu­dents.

The tu­tor­ing im­ple­mented in pre-school and pri­mary classes is the Walker learn­ing ap­proach, which in­volves in­ves­ti­ga­tion ses­sions from kinder­garten through to Year 2 and ed­u­ca­tion re­search projects from Year 3 up­wards.

The col­lege fea­tures ded­i­cated lit­er­acy and math­e­mat­ics ses­sions and spe­cial­ist classes in mu­sic and drama, In­done­sian and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion.

Re­li­gious ed­u­ca­tion is a for­mal learn­ing area and the school’s staff and fam­i­lies sup­port the Catholic ethos of the col­lege.

Inspired by Mother Teresa’s spirit of out­reach to­wards all hu­man be­ings, the school aims to chal­lenge its stu­dents to con­nect with learn­ing about them­selves, one another and the wider world, and con­trib­ute with con­fi­dence, courage and cre­ativ­ity to­wards mak­ing the world a bet­ter place.
