Philosophy

We believe that children are our most precious resource, and that providing them with an outstanding education and ensuring their well-being is our most important undertaking.

We believe the primary purpose of education is to develop and fulfil the unique potential in every child in a supportive, engaging and stimulating learning environment, and to inspire a lifelong love of learning. 

The Learning Approach

 

Our role as educators is to nurture and educate the whole child, and promote the intellectual, social, emotional, physical, character and aesthetic development of the children in our care.

We aim to create an inspiring, collaborative and inclusive learning environment, and utilize a range of instructional strategies and approaches to address the individual learning needs and learning styles of the children we teach, ensuring that every child meets with success. We strive to develop critical and creative thinkers who are confident, open-minded, have an appreciation and respect for diversity in all its forms, and demonstrate kindness, compassion, empathy, integrity and respect.

We believe it is essential to know our students as thinkers and inquirers, to listen to and honour their ideas, questions and interests, and be sensitive and responsive to their individual academic, social, emotional, physical, cultural and language needs.

We establish a supportive learning environment where children are encouraged to take risks, develop leadership skills, and develop an understanding and appreciation for the rich diversity of our world; their own cultures and personal histories, as well as those of others, and to be open to differing perspectives, values and traditions.

Our aim is to foster the knowledge, understanding, skills, and attitudes to develop internationally-minded, responsible, caring, engaged world citizens who use their talents and abilities to make a positive contribution to our world.
