Assessment and Reporting

 

Assessment

St Patrick’s uses a variety of assessment tools to gather data on the progress of individual Learners. We follow a formal assessment schedule at the beginning and conclusion of each year to ensure the Learners are being taught at the required levels. The data is used and analysed regularly to inform our teaching practices. Assessment is often discussed at a whole school level to ensure we are meeting the needs of our individual Learners and using all teaching expertise available. Assessment tools used are; anecdotal records, checklists, moderated work samples, diagnostic tests, observations, peer and self assessment protocols, conferences and assignments.

Curriculum

 

Religious Education Program

St Patrick's is a Catholic school. We believe that our Catholic Identity is integral to every aspect of the school and nurtures and guides who we are. Our commitment to our Catholic Identity is evident in all we do. At St Patrick’s we strive to live out the teachings of Jesus through the Gospel values. We believe that the holistic development of the Learner is possible in a safe, positive and caring environment. 

St Patrick’s integrates the ‘Source of Life program’ into the curriculum daily. The Source of Life is a program designed by the Diocese of Sandhurst and is delivered for approximately two and a half hours a week. Prayer, liturgy and attendance to Mass is also an integral part to one’s faith development and the school partakes in such traditions regularly. All Learners enrolled at St Patrick’s are taught Religious Education and expected to take part in these rituals and traditions. Concepts, values and key messages taught in Religious Education underpin all that we say and do. 

An individual’s religious education is a life long process and attending a Catholic School only enhances this. Religious education in the 21st Century aims to;

  • Foster within each individual a relationship with God.

  • Immerse children in the story of the Catholic Faith Traditions and to understand the faith traditions in others.

  • Create better self knowledge and spiritual growth.

  • Actively commit to acts of social justice and Reconciliation and recognise that these are grounded in the story of Jesus.
