Student Life and Learning
Student life and learning at St Hilda’s is engaging and innovative. It is important to us that each child feels happy, challenged and valued.
We strive to do this in several ways:
Our broad curriculum in the classroom and beyond encourages each student to discover her individual passions and talents from the Arts, Humanities, Maths and Sciences, or personal challenge programs, sport and outdoor education.
The confidence and self-esteem which comes from discovering what is unique about yourself and doing it well, flows over into all other aspects of life and learning.
Seamless Junior Kindergarten to Year 12 curriculum
St Hilda’s has a seamless JK-Year 12 curriculum which ensures students’ development is not hampered by unnecessary, often difficult transitions. Within this seamlessness we are very developmentally aware.
A differentiated curriculum means each student has the opportunity to progress when she is ready- to build skills and move easily to the next challenge. St Hilda’s girls are encouraged to be self-motivated, independent learners who can set goals and carry them through.
Proactive pastoral care
St Hilda’s has a sequential, proactive pastoral care program. We work hard to anticipate social and peer group challenges and to equip students to deal with issues before they occur.
The pastoral curriculum is overseen by our School Psychologists and delivered by classroom teachers in JK-Year 6 and by Heads of Year and tutors in Years 7-12.
St Hilda’s is a technology rich school. We have a reputation for being in the forefront of educationally sound Information Communication Technology. Our technological environment provides just the right up-to-date tool where and when it is needed.
St Hilda’s is an Anglican school. We model Christian values in our community whilst at the same time respecting the range of values and religions represented in our school community. We provide opportunities for students to understand the importance of values and religious beliefs and to appreciate the variety of ways in which different cultures express their values and beliefs.
