NSW Education Standards Authority

The college integrates the NSW Education Standard Authority curriculum with principles of education in human values. Using this approach, children see connections between what they are studying in their academic subjects and their own conduct and attitudes. Sathya Sai students are taught to explore all content and information from a values perspective.

We offer a differentiated curriculum, which provides an optimal learning environment for students of all ages. Each student is treated as an individual and given every opportunity to excel. Our students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning by reflecting on their personal best and striving to achieve by setting future goals. Through innovative and cooperative learning models students are encouraged to question and make authentic, meaningful connections that will help guide their own thoughts, words and deeds. Our students are encouraged to tap deep within themselves, to have full confidence in their “wise inner one within”.

We foster creativity, critical thinking and problem solving while providing students with the skills and strategies for effective collaboration and non-violent communication. This helps our students prepare for the challenges they will face in the years ahead. The integration of Values and Information Communication Technologies (ICT) supports the development of the key skills: accessing, organising, applying, creating, communicating and discernment. These skills are necessary for success now and in the future.

Homework

Homework is issued on Monday of each week and returned on Friday except the first and last week of term. Children need guidance and support to develop good work and study habits from an early age. Monitoring your child's homework is an important process in debriefing the child about the day's activities and showing your interest. You can help your child with homework by:

    • Providing a suitable place to study with proper lighting and ventilation and freedom from distractions such as TV, stereo, etc. Providing a quiet time in the household during homework and study time would be beneficial.
    • Ensuring your child has a regular time for homework and study. Help your child develop the habit of studying at the same time each day as far as possible by preparing a schedule which includes time for recreation, chores, homework and studying.
    • Monitoring your child’s homework. If homework is not done, the teacher may send home a letter, phone or ask the student to stay in during lunch for a short period of time to complete it.
  • Some homework may form part of a student’s assessment for learning. Students are expected to complete these tasks on their own merits.

 

In addition, all children need practice in reading, and need to be read good stories to improve their language fluency.
