Galilee Catholic School is a place where families, school, Church and other agencies work together in a learning community. Committed to high quality learning, the staff at Galilee work in partnership with families to help nurture a love for learning as well as the skills and attitudes needed to be successful learners.

Learning at Galilee is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach with learning programs guided by the central themes of caring about learning, caring about self and each other and caring about the environment.

 

Image of the Child

At Galilee Catholic School we hold a strong image of each child as full of potential and born with enormous capacity. We believe that learning to be fully ourselves begins with a commitment to encouraging ability, providing opportunities and allowing the potential in each one of us to unfold.

Galilee Catholic School provides opportunities to develop an understanding of the world through an engaging and meaningful curriculum that helps students acquire knowledge and develop the skills, attitudes and confidence to be lifelong learners. Religious Education, Literacy, Numeracy, Art, Music, Science and in particular Environmental Education are the focus of learning at Galilee.

Inside and Outside Learning

Learning is provided inside and outside in spaces and places that are inviting, intriguing and flexible in design, leading to deep learning and supporting student wellbeing. Galilee takes a sustainable approach to learning based on an understanding that there is a reciprocal relationship between the physical and psychological environments.

Galilee caters for children with special learning needs and particularly provides supportive practices in reading through the Literacy and Numeracy National Partnership program. School Chaplains support and nurture student wellbeing. As part of the learning community, playgroup is offered once a week as well as Centacare Family Counseling Services and other services through the parish.

Opened in January 2007, and located 40km south of Adelaide in Aldinga, Galilee Catholic Learning Community is a co-ed, R-7 school that is part of the local Catholic Church's vision for family centred church.
