Beliefs About Teaching and Learning 

We believe that all students are successful when:

  1. The whole child is nurtured in a safe, positive and supportive learning environment where social and emotional well-being is respected and catered for;
  2. Development is enriched through opportunities to collaborate and grow together in a learning community;
  3. Embedded values drive motivated and engaged learning, and social responsibilities;
  4. All components of the technologies learning area are integrated into authentic learning contexts;
  5. Play, and inquiry practices, are evident in our educational programs;
  6. Knowledge of all cultures and the needs of our planet empower our students to build a more cohesive and sustainable society;
  7. Problem solving and critical thinking are explicitly taught through purposeful and real world programs;
  8. They are encouraged to learn and reflect in a cooperative and supportive environment that fosters resilience;
  9. Learning is visible and higher order thinking, reflection and feedback is valued; and
  10. High academic and behavioural expectations are set and communicated.
