Online Learning during Covid-19
Our mission at Saint Ignatius’ College Junior School is to provide an authentic and quality Catholic education for students in the Jesuit tradition. A Jesuit education is based on cura personalis, the care of the individual person. This will continue to be at the core of what we do and helps to influence the decisions we make when moving forward with online learning. There will be an expectation that quality teaching and learning will continue to occur in a modified format while children are at home. This will allow teachers to provide students with authentic learning experiences that support opportunities for deep learning, critical thinking, and positive engagement.
We are also conscious that many of our families, including our teachers, will be working from home, so this will bring varying challenges. It is important that we look out for the wellbeing of all in our community and hold true to our values of being open to growth, faith-filled, and hopeful. The desire for good routines and procedures is an important part of thriving in a contemporary society. During times of uncertainty, this becomes even more important, particularly for our students and their learning.
We have provided the following resources to assist families.
