There is no doubt that the opportunities that are available to our students provide for new and different types of learning that were not available to previous generations.

Our attitude to education is one that acknowledges our responsibility to extend beyond the core curriculum and to provide a wide range of life experiences that foster the ...

A Cultural Experience in Kinder

This week we celebrated India Day in Kinder in support of the annual fundraiser the Senior School has hosted for the ‘Sewing the Seeds’, a women’s empowerment initiative in India.

Each class also participated in making sand art mandalas. These small ...

Fostering the Development of Resilience in Children

Dear Community,

The principal of a boys’ school in Little Rock, Arkansas, provoked some interesting conversation by posting a sign on the front door which read: “STOP. If you are dropping off your son’s forgotten lunch, books, homework, equipment etc. please TURN AROUND and exit the building. Your son will learn to problem-solve in your absence.”

This was an example of resilience development that was discussed at a Parent Education Series event that we hosted this week with highly regarded parenting expert, ...

100 Days of Prep!

Since the beginning of the school year, our Preppies have been counting the number of days we have been at school. The students counted each day using paddle popsticks, forming bundles of ten to represent the number of days. This has made them aware of the order of numbers and the importance of place value. When we reached 100 days, they reflected on how much they had learned at school and commented that they were 100 days smarter!
