Learning and Teaching

Ss Peter & Paul’s provides a balanced education within a Catholic faith community.

Students at Ss Peter & Paul’s achieve excellent standards in literacy and numeracy. These skills and proficiencies enable students to access an exciting, stimulating and broad curriculum at SSPP.

Learning at Ss Peter & Paul’s develops skills in critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration. It supports students to see themselves as lifelong learners, to set personal goals and to celebrate their own achievements and the achievements of others.

Each learning area is underpinned by thorough planning and high quality teaching utilising innovative learning strategies. At Ss Peter and Paul’s Integrated Inquiry based learning is taught on a two year cycle, covering the domains of science, geography, history, civics & citizenship, health and personal development, as outlined in the Victorian Curriculum.  Inquiry based learning begins with understanding what the children know and challenges them to inquire more deeply to develop their knowledge and understandings.

Students are able to measure their success by drawing on explicit learning intentions stated at the beginning of each lesson; and by using success criteria developed by the teacher / class to measure their own success in achieving a task.

Catholic Identity

At Ss Peter & Paul’s we celebrate our faith through our daily interactions with each other, the students and parents.

Opportunities that are provided for members of our community to explore their faith:

  • Learning designed using the RE Framework that is linked to our inquiry units of work
  • Whole school Masses

We understand the importance of constantly celebrating and reminding our own community of the daily success of Catholic primary school education. The good story to keep telling is about our vitality, our educational success and that we educate one in five Victorian with a message of a hope-filled world.
