At Rosalie we develop in our students:
- the desire to learn and ability to maximise their educational opportunities;
- the capacity to grow academically, socially, emotionally, physically and creatively to their full potential; and
- a social conscience, recognising the importance of contributing to his/her family, school and the wider community.
- all children and young people are capable of learning;
- students learn in different ways and their learning programs need to recognise this;
- the teacher is a critical factor in a child’s learning success;
- teaching needs to foster students taking responsibility for their own learning and setting challenging yet realistic goals for improvement;
- effective pedagogy is purposeful, challenging and connected to a student’s experience, stage of development and background;
- learning programs need to acknowledge and build on where students are at with their learning. They need to be culturally and developmentally appropriate and have real-life application;
- students should have the opportunity to observe and practise and teach other students the actual processes, products, skills and values, which are expected of them;
- the mental, physical health and well-being of students and teachers is a priority;
- students need opportunities to engage in higher order thinking and reflection about learning;
- the core-shared values in practice are the important foundation for all learning and teaching;
- learning happens best when student-teacher relationships are based on mutual trust and respect; and
- learning occurs where student, home and school have a common goal, interact positively and are mutually supportive.
