Learning Philosophy

WE BELIEVE

  • Every person is a passionate learner
  • Individuals learn at different rates and in different ways
  • Learning is a lifelong process
  • Every person wants to succeed
  • Self-esteem enhances learning and learning enhances self-esteem
  • Education and learning are shared responsibilities among students, family, school, community and society at large
  • Working collaboratively is essential in a competitive world

WE WANT TO DEVELOP CHILDREN WHO

  • Have a positive attitude toward learning
  • Know how to learn and hence become lifelong learners and problem solvers
  • Are self-motivating and set challenging though realistic personal goals
  • Have developed a rich conscious set of thinking skills and strategies they use with confidence
  • Have developed sound literacy and numeracy skills
  • Have developed a sound digital and information literacy
  • Possess knowledge and wisdom, character, emotional and social maturity
  • Appreciate and live by our core values

WE BELIEVE GREAT LEARNING HAPPENS WHEN

  • Students are involved in decision making about their own learning, particularly in the setting of goals
  • Learning is well-connected to the world in which they live their lives and to their abilities, interests, and culture
  • Learning recognises the individual nature of intelligence and learning style
  • Students receive continual feedback/feedforward from teachers, peers, parents and other external sources
  • Assessment is closely linked with the students’ own learning utilising a number of strategies including self-assessment and peer assessment
  • Teachers have high expectations of every student, understand quality and produce quality products
  • We develop a safe, trusting and fun environment which encourages and supports students to “have a go”
  • The home is actively involved in the child’s learning
