Inquiry

Learning in the 21st century requires a team approach where the expertise of each member is combined with the rich resources of the school library and the wider community in a collaborative and supportive learning environment.

Guided inquiry fosters engagement and reflection in each stage of learning, building on what learners already know to make sense of the world and to interpret for deep understanding.

Guided inquiry involves planning, guiding and modeling collaboratively with learners.

Guided inquiry enables learners to develop higher-order thinking through guidance at critical points in the learning process. Learners are able to use a variety of sources of information and different modes of learning to enhance their deeper understandings.

Guided inquiry builds a community of learners through social interaction and collaboration with others. This collaborative process is critical in developing the skills of lifelong learning.

Some of the concepts we explore across the school are sustainability, change, creativity, community and curiosity.
