St Mary's Catholic School Ellerslie - We provide a Catholic Education for the whole child

Our Vision for Learning


We aim to provide learning experiences that are meeting the needs of 21st century learners, build capability through collaboration, invest in people and innovation, provide learners with rich rigour and challenge, whilst being underpinned with digital technology in a culturally rich authentic context. Following a process of consultation, with community, students and teachers we have developed our Vision for Learning, which will compliment our existing broad vision.

It is based on four future focussed cornerstones for learning, which are COMMUNICATE, COLLABORATE, CREATE and CONNECT. These cornerstones for learning are built around our school values and our House patrons, which ensures that the school’s strong Special Catholic Character is explicitly interwoven into all aspects of our learning and they are underpinned with opportunities for eLearning.
