Here at St Aloysius, we are committed to ensuring that each child meets their full potential, excelling at every opportunity, both inside and outside of the classroom, in a happy and safe environment. We recognise that we are preparing our children for a future that is yet unknown. We allow and encourage them to think outside of the box. We teach them how to dream, cast vision and set goals. We teach our children how to deal with failure so that they learn how to pick themselves up, overcome challenges and ignite their initiatives again. We foster a climate of curiosity and independence and in doing so, develop transferable skills for life long learning and intrinsic value of life.
We want to create an atmosphere and environment in which children will develop into individuals who will:
St Aloysius Child Passport
The St Aloysius Child Passport allows children to record their experiences throughout their school life from Reception to Year 6.
The passport will then be split into 5 areas:
1. Outdoor Challenges – Encouraging our children to embrace outdoor life.
2. Our World – Experience the world we live in.
3. Creative Arts – To express yourself in a different way.
4. Life Skills – To develop independent and skills for the wider world.
5. Just for fun – Wellbeing, happiness, laughter, fun.
These areas are broken down into 20 key experiences for the children to complete and achieve whilst at St Aloysius, both in school and at home.
Children will be presented with awards for completing the activities. Awards for challenges completed:
Bronze – 5 in an area
Silver – 10 in an area
Gold – 15 in an area
Platinum – 20 in an area
The St Aloysius Award will be given when a child accomplishes all 20 activities in every area.
The St Aloysius Passport intends to bring together children, families and communities to celebrate life experiences and skills. We also want to acknowledge that a number of the experiences may happen outside of school either in activities your child undertakes in the local community or things they do with you – and these too can be celebrated through the St Aloysius Child Passport.
The children and staff have worked together to decide on the activities to be included in the Passport.
We hope this Passport will celebrate memorable events on their St Aloysius journey.
