We are no longer living in an era of change - we are living in a changed era

St John XXIII Catholic Learning Community are pioneers, innovators, and many would say outliers in this changed era – we are exploring the possibilities of education with no limits. We have recontextualised the concept of contemporary 21st Century learning – we have been purpose built to cater for the needs of our students, staff and community.

Our learning environment is not limited to our classrooms and has been extended in duration and proximity. Learning occurs locally, nationally and internationally as our students and staff are connected to the rest of the world. Our learning is personalised and developed through our Learning and Performance conferences.

We no longer have single teachers or class groups we have collaborative teams of teachers working in agile, dynamic, organic learning spaces designed to be flexible and to meet the needs of the learner.

Take the time to peruse my 'Principal's Library' and read my monthly posts to learn the many ways in which our Catholic Learning Community is educating students and staff for the ‘now’ and ‘future’.
