Definition of Learning

We learn when we build and apply new knowledge, skills, and understanding through authentic experiences.

Learning Principles

The following research-based learning principles guide our learning community:

We know that we learn best when we feel safe physically, intellectually and emotionally, therefore we cultivate a nurturing environment where we all feel comfortable taking risks.

  • We know that learning is social, therefore we collaborate to share ideas, learn from each other, develop new skills and understandings and are open to multiple perspectives.
  • We know that we learn best when we are motivated, therefore we emphasise meaningful, purposeful and authentic learning opportunities that engage individual passion, voice and choice.
  • We know the importance of higher-order, creative and critical thinking skills, therefore we question, inquire and demonstrate curiosity.
  • We know that individuals learn in different ways, therefore we scaffold learning to provide appropriate support and challenge, building on prior knowledge, experiences, and skills to construct meaning.
  • We know that the integration of a range of appropriate technologies enhances learning and promotes independence, therefore we ensure high levels of digital and media literacy, information fluency through access to multiple resources.
  • We know that making mistakes and having a growth mindset underpin high-quality learning, therefore we seek to build resilience and self-belief in order to face challenges with confidence.
  • We know that the learning journey is as important as the result, therefore we provide quality feedback and regular opportunities for meaningful self-reflection, consistently focusing on the process as well as the outcome.
