Our School Family Goal
At St Ignatius School we will be:
I am respectful. I treat others and my self as we deserve to be treated. I show courtesy to everyone. I learn from the wisdom of my elders.
I am responsible. I give my best to all that I do and keep my agreements. I learn from my mistakes. I am willing to make amends.
I am generous. I look for opportunities to give a d to share. There is plenty of time for thoughtfulness. I give freely, fully, and joyfully.
I am thankful for the happiness I feel inside. I enjoy my work and play. I appreciate the gifts this day holds for me.
To provide a warm, caring, supportive and stimulating Catholic environment in which all children throughout their learning journey develop positive attitudes about school life
To provide a safe, secure physical and emotional environment to enable each child to develop positive self-image and belief in him/herself as a learner
To recognise that each child’s brain is as ‘unique as a set of fingerprints’ and each child will therefore learn at their own pace and in the own time
To teach children the key elements of ‘brain care’ – sleep, exercise, water and nutrition
To provide lots of opportunities for play and exploration through which children will learn
To teach critical and creative thinking skills which will enable children to problem solve independently
To provide quality literacy and numeracy instruction
