Learning Enrichment (Rainbow Room)
The strategic Directions of the Townsville Catholic Education Office are a pathway that guides the educational, social and spiritual decision making in Catholic Schools. Our responsibility is to provide school communities centered on Gospel Values.
Learning Enrichment is made real for us through the strategic directions below;
- Strategic Direction 4:
Know and educate each student with a sustained commitment and effort to nurture and support their diverse capabilities and personal challenges, identifying and responding to each person’s unique gifts and talents.
- Strategic Direction 6:
Develop and support ongoing formation of teachers to enhance their capacity to respond to the vocation of teaching and to ministry in Catholic schools.(Statement of Strategic Directions, 2007-2011)
The Learning framework developed by Townsville Catholic Education Office provides the direction for all who work with children in our schools. At the heart of our response to the vocation of education are the following principles.
- Each child is given the opportunity to become an effective learner.
- Each school has the capacity to interpret and implement the curriculum.
- Each child engages in the curriculum supported by a framework of meaning based on the religious traditions of the Catholic Church.
- The Principal is the curriculum leader in the school.
