Our school’s pedagogy reflects the overarching principles and approach to learning outlined in the Sydney Catholic Schools’ Statement on Authentic Learning. By connecting to the real world of students’ lives, authentic learning enables students to become lifelong learners who contribute to society and the wider world as active and discerning citizens. Authentic learning is central to our work as Catholic educators because it promotes the continual growth and wellbeing of the whole person; spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically.

As a recently accredited Newman school, St Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School Hurstville is recognised for its ability to differentiate the curriculum to meet the needs of all students.  With a highly qualified diverse learning needs team and a dedicated teaching and support staff, the school is meeting the needs of the students in our care through a contemporary, dynamic, creative and challenging curriculum.
