The Prince of Peace Teaching and Learning Framework informs and ensures consistent and effective teaching and learning practices. This framework has been collaboratively developed and demonstrates our commitment to providing a caring Christ-centred environment and realising the Lutheran Education Australia Vision for Learners and Learning.
We believe each student’s educational experience should be characterised by three guiding principles that promote contemporary capabilities:
- Excellence through honour: we want students to pursue personal excellence; to honour each other, their God-given potential and to give of their best
- Learning with purpose: we wish to prepare all our students to become lifelong learners who are creative, critical thinkers, collaborators and communicators; who are multi-skilled, adaptable and innovative
- Growth through challenge: we believe it is important that students are provided with opportunities to push themselves, to be challenged to develop mastery in a supportive environment.
We are very proud of the five key principles that underpin Prince of Peace’s Teaching and Learning Framework and direct planning, teaching, assessment and reporting at the College. These five key principles are:
- High Expectations
- Positive Relationships
- Powerful Partnerships
- Life-Long Learning
- Responsive Teaching.
Each year level at the Junior School has a sequenced curriculum, drawn from a range of curriculum authorities. Our teachers use the draft Australian Curriculum and Queensland Learning Essentials. Prince of Peace also follow the Lutheran Education Australia Religious Studies framework.
As the Australian Curriculum Assessment Reporting Authority continues to roll out new information each year, we will make adjustments to our whole-school curriculum planning.
Prince of Peace has also developed a Prep to Year 12 Agile Digital Learning Strategy: Unlocking the Potential, which outlines the College’s commitment to the development of ICT capabilities that support effective transformation of learning. Our goals are to:
- ensure that the learner remains at the centre of teaching
- personalise the teaching and learning process
- provide opportunities for anywhere, anytime learning.
