EDUCATING FOR THE FUTURE

The learning journey at St Canice's Primary honours the developmental stages in a student’s life. Based on leading educational research and the best of today’s technologies, we prepare students for the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to lead and work both independently and collaboratively.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

As a Catholic school we also have a strong religious dimension that runs through all the Key Learning Areas (KLAs) and is also formally recognised as the KLA of Religious Education.

St Canice's students take part in formal Religious Education every day, based on the new Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta curriculum that is relevant to our students and to the world they live in.
