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.

At Freeman Catholic College Bonnyrigg Heights, everything we do is grounded in our pillars of learning. Our aim is to nurture the qualities of motivation, persistence and independence in our students and to deepen our understanding of Jesus and his message.

In doing so, we value the dignity and worth of every student and we hope to assist in the formation of young adults ready to make our world a better one.
