Learning

At St Nicholas of Myra Primary School, we believe that learning and teaching should be purposeful, lifelong, fun, and enable students to make meaningful connections and contribute as a Catholic adult to our society.


We are committed to developing young people who identify themselves as Catholics and live the Gospel values; who love learning; who are literate and numerate; who think creatively and critically; and who work in teams using communication, cooperation and negotiation skills.
