Learning at Norwest
In the Primary Years, students are supported to engage deeply in learning, both in academic knowledge and the skills needed to be effective learners. Our goal is to grow students who pilot their own learning, understanding their own strengths and weaknesses and setting challenging learning goals. Additionally, we aim that students understand the value of learning in community. Through collaborative learning experiences our students learn to work effectively with others towards common goals, seek to understand what others are saying and respond compassionately.
We assist Primary Years students to understand that mistakes, struggle and failure are a natural part of the learning cycle as these situations allow for time to stretch and grow different learning skills. Students are supported to develop skills to utilise when they become stuck in their learning, developing confidence in their learning ability and independence in their learning journey.
Each student has the benefit of connecting with a significant adult who holds a responsibility for the personal development of the student by considering their spiritual growth and social development as well as their academic progressDiscover More about Pastoral Care
