STEM and Material Studies

16 May 2024

Our Tullow Centre Construction Zone is a hub of activity with our Year 7 STEM and Year 8 Material Solutions students developing their skills in metalwork.
Year 7 students are learning jewellery techniques and Year 8 students have designed and made their own window charms - they look fantastic! Our purpose-built facilities provide students with many unique opportunities and we look forward to seeing creativity continue to flourish across the year.

Why Kildare?

The Educator - Rising Star Award

18 April 2024

We are so proud to share that Patrick Johnson, English Curriculum Coordinator and Gifted Education Key Teacher at Kildare College, has been awarded the prestigious ‘Rising Star’ title by The Educator; which recognises educators who demonstrate effective leadership, innovation, and achievement.
Patrick's outstanding leadership and innovative teaching and learning initiatives have garnered commendation from the community, with his latest achievement marking the official launch of 'Enlight,' a Gifted Education Framework at Kildare College.
The Enlight Gifted Education Program aims to facilitate an educational environment that caters to the unique potential of highly abled learners. The Framework emphasises four key areas for student provisions and adjustments: Differentiation, Enrichment, Extension, and Acceleration.
‘Researchers estimate that 10% of the student population is gifted’ says Patrick. ‘This program will empower highly abled students to achieve their full potential in their domains of giftedness by tailoring teaching and learning to their specialised needs, talents, and aspirations.’
We congratulate Patrick for his incredible achievements and encourage our community to read more about the Enlight Gifted Education Framework here: https://www.kildare.catholic.edu.au/.../enlight-kildare...
