The St Peter’s College Foundation Studies programme in Years 7, 8 and 9 combines Religious Studies with the three learning areas: English, Social Studies, and aspects of Physical Education and Health.
The Foundation Studies programme enables learning to occur in a context which reflects current pedagogies. Our holistic approach enables the teaching of values, key competencies, developing students’ critical and creative thinking skills, growing metacognition (knowing and understanding your own thinking) and learning to learn skills. With a strong focus on literacy, Foundation Studies provides a platform for future learning, leading into specialised subject areas in Year 10 and beyond.
In Foundation Studies, teachers are aware of the needs of individual students, both pastorally and educationally, because they are responsible for a large portion of the student’s learning.
