Newsletter – Term 1 Week 6, 2023

March 1, 2023


St Joseph’s Learning Spaces

We often have people ask us how our rooms operate and why we do what we do. Over the term, I will share with you the reasons why we love our teaching and learning spaces and philosophy.

Reason Number One: small group workshops allowing for target teaching according to need.
Reason Number Two: Our rooms enable students to move regularly.
Reason Number Three: Our learning spaces enable regular collaboration opportunities. A great way to learn is to talk to others. Being able to regularly collaborate with learning, significantly enhances the understanding of new topics. Due to the furniture in our learning spaces, teachers can change the configuration to best suit the purpose of their lessons. Regular discussion is encouraged throughout our learning spaces.


NAPLAN will be occurring this year for all of our Year 3 and 5 students. All tests except for the Year 3 writing test will be conducted online.
