Learning & Teaching


Our Collaborative Learning and Teaching spaces offer students the opportunity to excel within their schooling in a variety of contemporary learning spaces. Classrooms are co-teaching, co-planning spaces with flexible seating and furniture. 

Our flexible learning spaces offer a more individualised approach to learning. Students work throughout the day in a variety of different teaching and learning senerios based around David Thornburg's (2014) philosophy of learning spaces of ; 

  • Campfire- Explicit Teachiing. For the time when teacher-lead direction and discussion is required. 
  • Watering Holes- Peer Review and Response Time. Where connection are made between peers and their learning. 
  • Caves- Individual Reflection- Where students can reflect and deepen their learning​
