Welcome to Organic Learning

We have been immersed in Organic Learning since 2015. The content of this site represents our learning since making the decision to embark on a self-determined learning journey, which will never come to an end.

Organic Learning is the lens through which we view education in schools. We believe it can be adapted to any learning environment for any learning cycle, with a primary imperative to focus on purposeful learning through a transdisciplinary approach.

Deeply embedded within Organic Learning are fundamental principles that promote transparent accountability, rigorous alignment, growth in internal and external awareness, self-determined learning, and an organic disposition.

Our organic learning journey has attracted consecutive National Innovative Schools Awards in 2017 and 2018. During 2018, we have facilitated NESA accredited courses in the form of Professional Development Twilights and Staff Development Days, on various components of Organic Learning for teachers across Sydney Catholic Schools.
