Educating young women in the Franciscan tradition

Learning Framework

Mount Alvernia College

Staff work with intention and in partnership with students, across curriculum, pedagogy, well-being programs, extra-curricular and pastoral relationships to reflect our learning vision for the Mount Alvernia graduate.

Mount Alvernia Graduates are people of hope, courage, industry, persistence and curiosity. They are highly literate and numerate; they know how to learn and are committed to ongoing improvement. Capable critical thinkers, they value accuracy, precision and feedback. They engage in respectful, robust questioning and conversation to progress their own learning.  They practise their skills and routines with regularity to ensure proficiency. They value work readiness, diversity, tolerance and global perspectives and recognise the role they will play as changemakers for a socially just and ecologically sustainable future.

With our Franciscan values overarching all that we do, our Learning Framework provides the professional platform for our pedagogy approach and how we implement it within the College.

Teachers work with students intentionally to emphasise the following learner dispositions:

  • Readiness
  • Aspiration
  • Persistence
  • Agency
  • Scholarship

Our Learning and Teaching framework has been developed by a committed team of teachers and leaders.  Deputy Principal – Teaching and Learning, Kath Little is responsible for the oversight of all learning within the College, with a particular focus on the implementation of the Learning and Teaching Framework, tracking of student learning, and analysis of data to inform school growth and development.
