Every child is different and so is his or her learning journey

Our approach to learning puts the growth of each individual child at the heart of schooling. Schools in the Diocese of Parramatta are places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. St Nicholas of Myra Primary welcomes and truly values each student in our diverse and multicultural learning community.

Project Based Learning (PBL), an approach focused on real-world problem-solving, is a major part of our teaching in Year 3 to Year 6. Skills to support PBL are taught in Kindergarten to Year 2 to prepare them for the transition into Primary.

Each child’s unique strengths and needs guide the design of the learning opportunities we provide to our students.

After all, learning how to learn is equally important as what we learn!
