TEACHING & LEARNING
Angelorum College has a contemporary Catholic vision for teaching and learning. The College
integrates a faithful Catholic worldview into all content areas, nurtures a growth mindset, and a learning pedagogical framework that is constantly striving to improve student learning. The College provides regular feedback to students through formative assessment, maintains a healthy teacher-student ratio, and assists staff to innovate new solutions to learning. Peer to peer feedback with teachers and a commitment to professional development which is targeted to our unique setting (multi-age classes, distance education, etc) as well as ongoing faith formation and team collaboration are vital components of our staff culture.
The College has two sections on its campus, centered around Jesus’ real presence in the Tabernacle. Preparatory to Year 6 use the Western wing and Years 7-10 use the Eastern wing.
The Chapel with the Blessed Sacrament sits in the middle, providing the backbone for the campus. Students play together at lunch times and enjoy a vertical buddy system, which provides a seamless transition from Year 6 into Year 7, while at the same time providing an educational environment that respects the developmental needs of each student. There are many great facilities nearby that the College has access to. Bedford Park & the Valley Pool are utilised for Health and Physical Education lessons.
Angelorum College’s class sizes are small. This provides an excellent environment for teacher-student interaction. Classes are also supplemented with teacher aides who work closely with particular groups at the discretion of the teacher.
