HOLISTIC EDUCATION targets the student’s whole self; not simply as a means to improve attendance, behaviour or academic grades, but as an ethos which regards the student’s ongoing self-actualisation as the very purpose of education.
HOLISTIC TEACHERS facilitate young people to follow their own complex and unique, physical, social, emotional, cognitive, behavioural, personal journey. We encourage students to be the leader of their own learning, scaffolding opportunities for them to construct meaning and to grow in ways that will have the most impact and value for them.
THE CREATIVE ARTS provide immersive learning opportunities and experiences for young people to use their imaginations, to discover more about their unique contexts, and to decide their place and purpose in the world.
DRAMA IS A MICROCOSM of life, where young people can explore a vast array of situations and narratives, themes and issues, roles and responsibilities, guided by their own instincts and innate predisposition for imaginative play.
WE NURTURE CONFIDENCE in young people; to work collaboratively, learn independently, be in control of their own content and to lead the direction of their learning. Our students develop strong interpersonal bonds, love of learning and internal values, because they are in the driving seat of their own processes, and because their whole being is at the heart of the learning process.
WE INSPIRE YOUNG PEOPLE to discover for themselves what is meaningful to them; to want to learn, because they need to learn, to do the things they want to do.
