Fly High Seek Success

 

Our Vision

We aim to challenge and extend all students:; academically, socially, emotionally, physically and creatively while catering for the individual child.

Our core beliefs about teaching for optimum learning underpin the curriculum: 

  • Students learn in different ways and their learning programs need to recognise this. 
  • Teaching needs to foster students taking responsibility for their own learning and setting challenging yet realistic goals for improvement. 
  • Learning happens best when student - teacher relationships are based on mutual trust and respect. 
  • The mental health and well-being of students and teachers is a priority. 
  • Effective pedagogy is purposeful, challenging and connected to a student’s experience, stage of development and background. 
  • Learning programs need to acknowledge and build onto students’ current levels. They need to be culturally and developmentally appropriate and have real life application. 
  • Students should have the opportunity to observe and practise and teach other students the actual processes, products, skills and values which are expected of them. 
  • All children and young people are capable of learning. 
  • Students need opportunities to engage in higher order thinking and reflection about learning.
