STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) is the need for the students of ‘today’ to embrace the learning that will be needed for them not only to survive but thrive in their future. We need to be producing students that show initiative and are innovative. We want students to think critically, creatively and globally. At school we plan to fully embrace this concept by ensuring our students have opportunities to experience and engage with the application of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Teachers are developing program that allows our students to engage with technology, think outside the square, learn a new skill, be a philanthropist and have authentic student voice. Staff are very excited! We are developing partnerships with Scientists, Sister Schools, and those who work within these fields. We will start small but watch this space — as BIG things will certainly develop.
We place great emphasis on the students’ wellbeing, extra-curricular activities and sports. All our students are encouraged to find something that is of interest. Our students learn thrill of challenge and competition, the importance of teamwork and a sense of accomplishment.
We encourage parents to get involved in school life. From fundraiser to Thursday Free Breakfast for students, Loose Parts to Sports Carnival; Parents & Friend Association is connected to school.
