Inquiry-based Learning

Magpie groups nominate an inquiry per term. This inquiry is integrated within English and Mathematics learning, but also incorporates the areas of the Australia Curriculum not covered in discovery. Inquiry is an approach that scaffolds children's questioning, their research and exploration, the way in which information is presented and encourages action based on findings. Inquiries vary depending on the group's questions and interests, and also on the curriculum content at the various year levels. Children are natural inquirers, but are supported to develop their skills to help them organise thoughts, learn how to research using a range of primary and secondary sources, how to present data, communicate powerfully, and develop their critical and creative thinking.  See an example.

Teachers educate our students on safe practices taught in the “Child Protection Curriculum” so they can live in our world making safe and appropriate choices.
