Our Teaching Philosophy - St Mary's Girls' School

Our Teaching Philosophy

Curious minds lead the way in our Early Learning Centre. That is why our experienced staff embrace the Kath Murdoch Inquiry-Based Learning Model, an educational approach that focuses on fostering students’ curiosity, critical thinking and active engagement in the learning process. The model encourages students to ask questions, investigate topics of interest and construct their own understanding of concepts.

Kath Murdoch’s Inquiry-Based Learning Model promotes a student-centred approach, where students take ownership of their education, develop a love for learning and acquire skills that extend beyond the classroom. Our students embark on their first inquiry-based learning project at the beginning of Year 1.

St Mary’s is all about girls discovering their best. We want our students to be engrossed in the exploration of ideas, to be self-motivated and self-directed, to delight in trying something new and to contribute positively to the community.
