St Teresa of Kolkata primary school will promote positive mindsets so that learners are motivated and excited to challenge themselves in their own learning. At St Teresa of Kolkata, we will place importance on teaching students to stretch themselves, persevere with things when they are hard or difficult and be resilient when learning is challenging.

Underpinning all educational decisions will be the notion that all students can learn and thrive given the right tools. We will continually seek out best practice in Learning and teaching so that there is a contemporary curriculum that addresses the needs of all students for today and for the future.
