Student Expectations

  • Students of excellence and balance: Another important expectation of our students is that they engage with the learning process – 21st century students need to develop lifelong learning and inquiring skills.

 

  • Citizens are responsible to their nation and the world: Students are expected to serve a vital role within the school community, and they should contribute and give back to our metropolitan, national, and international communities through good citizenship and community service.

 

  • Leaders with hearts, spirit and values: We believe in inquiry-based instruction where the student, through the teacher’s support and facilitation, is encouraged to learn by developing questions, and researching and applying information to solve problems in a relevant, ‘real-time’ environment. Through ‘discovery learning’, students recognize that there is no limit to their acquisition of knowledge and skills, applied in context, as they explore their global community

  • Cooperative:  Be willing and able to work as part of a team.

 

  • Globally-minded:  Welcome different views and ways of doing things.

 

  • Inquisitive:  Ask questions about what you are experiencing. Let these questions guide your learning.

 

  • Moral:  Make good choices by thinking about them and about whom they affect.

 

  • Resilient:  Never quit. Always aim to improve and make progress.

 

  • Respectful:  Show respect for others, the school and yourself.

 

  • Thoughtful:  Think of new ways to solve problems.
