In October, The Educator revealed Australia’s 5-Star Innovative Schools of 2021, recognising the education trailblazers who are transforming the way our young people are being educated for the better.
One of the schools recognised was Genazzano FCJ College, a Roman Catholic, day and boarding school for girls, located in Melbourne.
The College has been recognised for the work that its Institute of Learning and Brain Sciences is doing to promote an understanding of brain function and health for improved learning and living, and in doing so, lift student outcomes across the campus.
At the College, teachers use their expertise to translate and apply specific neuroscientific principles to different contexts for enhanced learning outcomes.
“We provide holistic learning outcomes at Genazzano which ensure students are equipped with the important life skills they will need after graduation,” the school’s principal, Loretta Wholley, told The Educator.
