The following explanations provide insight into how the Brigidine College Learning Framework can be interpreted and how it guides the education of the whole student.

Framework Centre

The centre of the Framework is the STUDENT.

This is surrounded by the Learning Paradigm – Key Attributes, which were developed by staff.

Whole School Learning

The next surrounding circle is wider as it focuses on the day-to-day practices in our whole school learning, which leads to the Key Attributes, which we hope for the students.


These areas interlink and are equally important to achieve outcomes for the students.

  • Wellbeing, goal setting, mentoring
  • Structures of learning – how we structure our teaching, tutoring, training eg.
    • Dimensions of Learning 2, 3 & 4
    • Classroom Instruction That Works
