WA, Perth, South Western Suburbs
All Saints’ College in Bull Creek is Perth’s first independent Anglican co-educational school. Proudly non-selective, diversity is in our DNA — diversity of our students’ genders, abilities, cultures, faiths and interests.
However, the college doesn’t simply reflect the diversity of the wider community in which our students will eventually be collaborating, creating, problem-finding and problem-solving: it is the real world.
Working with partners from the tertiary sector, from industry and from various community groups, the college curates a rich environment to allow students to go beyond the traditional boundaries of education, developing a deep and authentic, empathetic and ethical perspective.
Our ‘ATAR Plus’ approach recognises that, while the vast majority of students strive to achieve the highest possible ATAR, we also cater for those pursuing a General pathway, an Enterprise pathway and/or a Hybrid pathway. The ‘ATAR Plus’ approach emphasises the richness of the learning that takes place in our broad co-curricular program, whether that be in Propeller Industries (our Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship) and Runway, our pop-up shop which features our students’ goods and services, or in more traditional clubs and activities.
Enriching our young people’s exposure to entrepreneurialism, problem-finding and problem-solving is The Agency, an employment agency for ASC students. While students volunteer their time and skills in an array of service opportunities, The Agency offers the opportunity to develop an array of 21st-Century learning skills while applying their passions, skills and talents in authentic contexts.
Students apply formally for roles across the campus, shaping statements of claim that highlight their capabilities, and then are interviewed for positions such as videographers, book reviewers, IT tech coaches, grounds staff and oral historians, to name but some. Successful candidates are mentored by staff to reach agreed deliverables and KPIs.
Underpinning our ATAR Plus approach is Djoowak: The Beyond Boundaries Institute (BBI). Launched in 2018, BBI comprises a team of college staff working alongside partners from the wider educational community and from industry. This ‘think tank’ explores and implements new and flexible structures and practices for learning that recognise and are focused on our diverse student cohort’s interests, abilities, passions and skills, and that are directed to nurturing future-capable young people.
The college’s ‘personalisable’ approach to education prioritises student agency, empowering young people to be the architects of their own learning as they seek to achieve mastery in their chosen pursuits.
For 2020 the college has created a timetable structure that supports personalisable learning pathways that empower our young people in Years 9 and 10 — then staged across other year groups — to take control of their learning, developing their agency and efficacy.
One of our core responsibilities is to ensure our diverse student population is equipped to step confidently into a future characterised by rapid change and uncertainty. To do so requires a skillset and a mindset that include initiative and enterprise, creativity and collaboration, and a passion for problem-finding and problem-solving.
And we want to be sure that our students “know what to do when they don’t know what to do” in these exciting though rapidly changing times. This requires that our students have a strong moral compass: All Saints’ students know that, when faced with uncertainty, they need only ask ERIC — our college values of Empathy, Respect, Integrity and Courage — for a clear sense of guidance.
