St Patrick's School
Katanning

 

St Patrick’s Catholic School in Katanning aims to emulate Jesus through its motto of CONCERN by engaging children, teachers, parents, community and the parish to work together in a supportive and happy environment.

Our school acknowledges parents as the primary educators of their children, and aims to further develop each child intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually, creating lifelong learners who have the ability to draw upon processes and skills, to cope with future technologies in a changing society.

Our school strives to be accepting of multicultural and individual differences. It acknowledges the rights of children to be safe and values them through pastoral care.

Newsletter 15th November 2017, Term 4, Week 6

It was wonderful to see so many parents and guardians at the Combined Classes presentation on Monday night. Our staff were outstanding in presenting aspects of what the combined classes will look like and how we will address teaching and
learning at St Patrick’s in 2018. Our staff have spent considerable time discussing and working through issues in relation to combining classes. I asked parents to consider the concept of differentiation and what that means in a straight class and then in a combined classroom. Our staff led parents through our Religious Education and Sacramental programs, through Literacy and Numeracy and we spoke about the positive benefits related to the social and emotional learning of our students. Parents
then had an opportunity to ask questions about different aspects of the combined classes. After the presentation, many families thanked our staff for the hard work that we had put into the night. There were many teachers amongst our parent body and it was not a new concept or idea to deal with – it was very familiar to them.
