Teaching and Learning across the curriculum

Learning is a life-long endeavour. We aim to instil a love of learning through specific and targeted student-centred learning experiences that challenge all students. We believe that only through challenge can true growth occur. 

The school offers regular instruction in Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Personal Development/Health/Physical Education, Science and Technology, Human Society and Its Environment, and The Creative and Practical Arts. We believe all learning is a developmental process and as a result, there will be tremendous individual differences.


Students at St Gregory's from Kinder to Year 6 participate in specialist PE lessons each week with our Physical Education and Health Educator. These lessons are also augmented by other specific sporting programs throughout the year.

Our library is a valuable resource for the entire school. Our Teacher Librarians take each class every week to assist class teachers with aspects of research and development in other subject areas, sometimes using digital learning tools, to make sense of the world in their contexts. Our libraries are well-resourced with a variety of relevant literature and digital learning tools to engage students in a multi-modal world of literature. The library is a welcoming and quiet space open at most break times for all students.

Music and Choir

Music is offered at every year level and taught by a Music Specialist Teacher. Students learn:
  • instrumental and vocal ensemble work,
  • theory and composition
  • and music appreciation.

Students also learn ukulele, recorder, tuned and untuned percussion and vocal skills. 

The school has a Year 3-6 vocal ensemble and a beginner's stage band. The school ensemble competes at eisteddfods and performs at community events including school masses.

Individual music lessons are available in piano, keyboard, guitar, woodwind, brass, drums, and classical voice.
