Primary School

At Stanhope Catholic Learning Community, we aim to encourage every student to discover early in life how awesome they can be!

Our learning community is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning are treasured. School is a place of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities.

Stanhope Learners are equipped with tools to engage in meaningful learning experiences which they use to measure their progress. Stanhope Learners have a growth mindset, they know where they are at in their learning and what they need to do to improve.




Let your kids discover awesome at CLC! Educated in life, for life!





The primary years lay the foundations for life-long learning.





In the early years of Primary the structure of learning is mostly teacher lead but the focus is on foundation learning through play.

Students in the foundation years, while learning core concepts of literacy and numeracy, also learn how to learn. They develop the dispositions and behaviours required to express ideas and respond to others.

The delivery of collaborative lessons in purpose built learning spaces provides a dynamic, engaging learning environment. The learning environment, then, is designed for collaborative work working at tables.

Our Upper Primary students are proof that school can be fun, stimulating and a growing experience.

Our classrooms are places of curiosity, friendship, order, respect and hard work. While there is major focus on each student acquiring a sound knowledge of literacy and numeracy skills, students learn contemporary IT skills, grow in their knowledge of the arts and most importantly, grow in Catholic character.

As students progress to upper years of primary they are talking, visualising, articulating ideas and sharing new learnings in all sorts of creative ways. The emphasis is on feedback. The learning environments for these years are designed for the students to visualise their thinking, share their learning and for others to give their feedback in a way where they can talk, move and stand up.







Learners become creative critical thinkers through personalised and accelerated programs. Learners become connected and communicate through real-life experiences. Through this learning journey they soon discover how awesome they can be.



We’ll work with your child to find out how they learn best.


Through inquiry students are immersed in the learning process, connecting their learning to the real world.


We’ll work closely with your child as they grow in responsibility for their learning.
