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 Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School Hoxton Park, pastoral care is our call to be Nurturing Disciples, ensuring the social, physical, spiritual, academic and emotional wellbeing of each member of the community.
