Learning & Teaching

St Brigid’s aims to foster a lifelong love of learning in all our students and every student is encouraged to strive to achieve their personal best as they progresses through each academic year.

Enrol Today
Curriculum design at St Brigid’s is based on the Understanding by Design framework (UBD framework) by Wiggins and McTighe.
It provides a planning process and structure to guide curriculum, assessment, and instruction. Its two key ideas are focusing on teaching and assessing for understanding and learning transfer, and to design curriculum “backward” from those ends.

The courses offered are intended to provide students a balanced and diversified experience with an emphasis on extending literacy and numeracy competence. Students complete a range of mandatory courses as set out by the NSW Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES):

  • Religious Education
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Human Society & Its Environment
  • Technology and Applied Studies
  • Creative & Performing Arts
  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education
  • Languages
