Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey

Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. Mother Teresa welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.

Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.

After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!

Inspired learning starts with highly motivated and professional teachers

Like you, we know that great teachers make a real difference in a child’s life. Our teachers are lifelong learners too and regularly undertake professional development to keep up to date with current best practice in education. Our expert teachers will tailor teaching to meet your child at their point of need, track how they are progressing, and respond with extra support when needed.

Our learning journey

The Catholic Schools Parramatta Diocese Learning Journey honours the developmental stages in a student’s life. Based on leading educational research and the best of today’s technologies, we prepare students for the workplaces of the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to work collaboratively.

Learning through play

Based on the latest educational research, at Mother Teresa we employ a number of innovative approaches to learning. For our youngest students, this includes 'investigative play'. One hour out of each day is dedicated to play-based learning. While participating in enjoyable, fun activities students learn to collaborate, to negotiate and to reach compromises, to share ideas and express opinions, to make and follow rules and to act with agency. These rich learning experiences result in highly engaged students with a firm foundation for future learning.
