Curriculum & Assessment

At Mother Teresa Primary we respect proven learning practices from the past, while also supporting 21st century learning and teaching.

Our aim is to provide educational programs that are relevant and meet the needs of each individual student. Our programs are designed to develop creative and compassionate lifelong learners. Mother Teresa Primary is a "sustainable school" incorporating environmentally active learning opportunities throughout the whole curriculum.

Assessment, formal and informal, provides teachers with information regarding students’ needs and informs programming which is flexible, but clearly directed. Reporting to parents is done through both formal and informal processes.

Self and peer assessment is encouraged as part of developing a culture of reflective learning. Opportunities are provided for students to share and evaluate their learning experiences, and to reflect on what worked and how it could have been improved. Teachers provide quality feedback that provides support and extends students’ learning.

Mother Teresa Primary prides itself on establishing close relationships with our neighbouring Catholic secondary schools in the Westmead Catholic Education Precinct, and we endeavour to provide a smooth transition for our students from primary to secondary school.
