Curriculum

This suite of guiding documents have been developed through the Mission and Education Services Team (2009-2013) and endorsed by the Tasmanian Catholic Education Commission for use in Tasmanian Catholic schools and colleges.

 

The documents have been developed drawing upon:

  • • The discerned learning needs of our students
  • • The Catholic vision of education
  • • Current research regarding best theory and practice
  • • The wisdom and experience of our educators
  • • The dynamic, evolving educational environment in recent Australian educational history

 

The pace of change in national schooling in the recent years has been phenomenal. Schools have built facilities that offer augmented spaces to foster connected, interactive, focused learning, within a reflective learning community, utilising contemporary pedagogies and providing constant access to the world of the internet.

The Federal Government has increasingly required that schools meet standards in school development and improvement, student achievement, governance, accountability and implementation of nationally agreed curriculum standards.

As a Catholic system, in developing guiding documents, we always return to the Gospel of Jesus, our Vision and Mission Statements and the Archbishop’s Charter for Catholic Schools to test all assumptions and enrich texts that could otherwise be merely instrumental and functional.

The Church constantly clarifies the fundamental characteristics of the Catholic school: as a place of integral education of the human person through a clear educational project of which Christ is the foundation; its ecclesial and cultural identity; its mission of education as a work of love; its service to society. These are the traits which should characterize the educating community. (The Catholic School on the Threshold of the Third Millenium, 4)

 It is vital that these documents become part of the culture of all our colleges and schools, informing educational programs and providing guidance to ensure high quality standards in learning and teaching.
