Our vision statement highlights our beliefs and practices regarding learning and teaching.
A key factor in improving educational outcomes for all students is providing a learning environment that unifies our language, modelling and relationships to meet the complex needs of all our students. As a school community we aim to enhance the educational outcomes, including wellbeing, for all students through the implementation of evidence-based practice to enhance all daily classroom learning. We acknowledge the foundation for academic outcomes stems from positive relationships. We recognise the critical importance of school relationships, personal perceptions and mental and emotional states required by students to be completely engaged in their learning. Within our classrooms we want to build self-confidence, enjoyment of learning and minimise fears around taking a risk to learn.
Our vision statement is positioned within the Brisbane Catholic Education Teaching and Learning Framework
St Peter's key messages about learners and learning and teachers and teaching are informed by our Christian Catholic traditions and the Brisbane Catholic Education Learning Framework. This framework outlines the tradition and vision for learning and growth of our students built on our values and beliefs. As a Catholic Christian community, we educate all to live the gospel of Jesus Christ as successful, creative and confident, active and informed learners empowered to shape and enrich our world.
