Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person — spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

Our school wide pedagogy encompasses all that we do in our teaching and learning at St Felix Catholic Primary School Bankstown.

At St Felix we aspire to motivate dynamic learners to think creatively, and to reflect on their learning.

At St Felix we are inspired to make an active response to our faith by nurturing positive relationships, and by reaching out and responding with faith and love in our world.

At St Felix we make a difference by encouraging learners to be actively engaged not only in their own learning, but also in the learning of others, and to make sense of their world.

In order to live out of our shared beliefs we respond as a MacKillop community which collaborates to create an environment where all members:

  • value learning as the core purpose
  • have an active voice
  • are committed to environmental stewardship
  • shine.
