Learning principles

Our school mission is to prepare students for the lives that they will live. We know the world is changing rapidly and so to be successful in the future students need to be lifelong learners, able to resolve complex problems whilst working with others. Our pedagogical model is inquiry. Inquiry based learning starts by posing questions, problems or scenarios for investigation. Teachers act as facilitators of learning. Inquirers identify and research issues and questions to develop their knowledge or find solutions to complex problems.

Student Support

Support for special learning needs

Yes

The school accepts students with disabilities and learning difficulties and employs a psychologist, learning support teachers and a special needs teacher to support classroom teachers to provide appropriate programs for these students. Students are grouped by ability for literacy from prep (KG2) and learning support teachers work as part of the literacy block to provide additional assistance to students with learning difficulties. Students with disabilities are supported by our Special Needs Teacher. Each of these students has an individual learning plan.

Support for gifted and talented students

Our school offers a Students with High Potential Program (SHIP) program in years 3-5. We identify students with gifts and talents and provide a range of targeted activities for these students.
