At the beginning of your child’s journey at All Saints’ College, students come together in our early learning centre innately curious and keenly motivated to understand the world through their unique perspective.
Play-based learning in the early years is guided by educators with specific experience in early childhood development and is curated to inspire and provoke as students develop core skills and capabilities. As children develop, play becomes framed with inquiry, enabling self-motivated learning to continue through all Junior School years.
Throughout their Junior School journey, children are encouraged to work positively through mistakes and to see them as natural in learning: All Saints’ calls this flearning, or learning through failing. And importantly, resilience grows as students learn through play, and enjoy the process of learning.
Within and beyond the classroom, authentic learning continues as students connect with their local area through the college’s Bush School, Outdoor Learning and Service Programs, becoming active and engaged contributors in their community.
Increasing developmentally, students’ passions and interests are explored through real-world learning opportunities within and beyond the college community.
The Design Thinking process, the Inquiry Framework and Thinking Routines are effective tools to support innovative projects, and the students’ entrepreneurial mindset thrives on innovative and creative projects. Adopting a ‘head, heart and hands’ approach, students also commit to making a positive difference in the world by thinking critically about, and empathising with, the wider community. Students are then empowered to take action through their involvement in the college’s many service opportunities.
