The high quality of the learning and teaching in the Catholic Education SA network is something we strive to uphold.
Our teachers deliver a comprehensive curriculum in their classrooms, supported by school leadership and our parents - in a partnership designed to ensure every student experiences success according to their unique characteristics and talent.
Assessment is a fundamental part of the learning process, especially important in providing feedback to the learner and to the teacher.
This is perhaps best illustrated by this quote: “The most powerful single moderator that enhances achievement is feedback” John Hattie, University of Auckland, 1999 Inaugural Professorial Lecture.
Effective assessment in schools draws on a range of assessment methods to provide information that can inform future learning and be used for reporting on student progress.
The South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is internationally recognised as the educational pathway most South Australian students would use to gain entry to TAFE and university courses in South Australia, interstate and overseas.
Every student in SA Catholic secondary schools is entitled to a learning pathway that maximises their post compulsory schooling options and hopes for a career.
Our schools offer an inclusive curriculum which supports students through the secondary years of schooling and in particular prepares and creates pathways into a range of post schooling destinations such as further education, training and employment.
The unique balance and offering of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) is inclusive of Vocational Education and other programs in recognition of the fact that all students deserve access to diverse pathways and support for whichever options they choose to follow.
