St. Patrick’s Primary School engaged the services of Practically Learning to develop a marketing brochure to promote the school within the local community.

We discovered that the school had many things to offer local children as a unique learning community where discovery is at the heart of the school. We developed the theme of discovery in the footsteps of Jesus, drawing on the school slogan and used this throughout the promotional brochure to highlight the learning areas and strengths of learning at the school.

Exploring the vibrant and unique learning spaces that the school has to offer through professional photography and design, the result was a vibrant portrayal of a thriving, exciting new school captured through beautiful images and concepts around discovery as an important element of learning, developing relationships and a community of learners.

Our partnership continues with St. Patrick’s with various facilitated workshops for staff and parents around student wellbeing and parent- teacher relationships.

More recently, Practically Learning was involved in running sessions for staff and leadership in understanding how to work effectively with parents. We have developed planning and implementation for the Family-School Partnerships Team and are currently coaching and mentoring staff to build their capacity as enablers of parent engagement to develop improvements in communication and engagement in learning.
