Some very exciting learning and developments are on the horizon for 2017, including the introduction of INQUIRY learning.

Our 2017 Mantra is:

"CHANGE AGENTS IN THE MAKING, OUR ENVIRONMENT FOR SUSTAINING!”



This term our INQUIRY learning is about becoming a TravelWise school with our Inquiry Statement:

"If you want traction, you have to take action!”



With our Inquiry Question:

"What are our paths for change?”




You may be asking what INQUIRY actually is…


Through the process of inquiry, individuals construct much of their understanding of the natural and human-designed worlds. Inquiry implies a "need or want to know" premise. Inquiry is not so much seeking the right answer -- because often there is none -- but rather seeking appropriate resolutions to questions and issues. For educators, inquiry implies emphasis on the development of inquiry skills and the nurturing of inquiring attitudes or habits of mind that will enable individuals to continue the quest for knowledge throughout life. -Concept to Classroom


We also have our Inquiry Cycle to help our students, teachers, parents and school community understand the process we are initiating through our Term One Inquiry to become TRAVELWISE.

We start with the Tuning In part of the cycle and move around to Finding Out, Exploring Alternatives, Going Further, Drawing Conclusions, Taking Action and finish on Reflecting.
