Students at St Monica’s are consistently recognised for their learning achievements at both a classroom level and at our whole school assemblies.
At each weekly assembly a student from each class is recognised for an outstanding achievement. A certificate is presented and all student photos are displayed on our weekly achievement display. We also acknowledge these students in our weekly newsletter.
Showcasing our Visible Learning 2020!
St Monica’s participated in a Visible Learning Project with Corwin Australia, which focuses on putting John Hattie’s Visible Learning research into practice. We have been recognised for our achievements in the Visible Learning Project by being showcased on the Corwin website as an example for schools on how to embed visible learning principles within a school, and how visible learning strategies have maximised student learning and outcomes for our students.
Being part of this project helped staff understand how we can support our students in being the best learners they can possibly be. Our staff embraced the research and worked together to implement strategies that lead to accelerated learning outcomes for all students. Our teachers have a range of strategies that they can select based on each phase of learning.
