Students are encouraged to focus on developing solutions to real world problems. They work collaboratively in Stage 4 (Years 7 & 8) to analyse, design, test, document, implement and evaluate solutions to challenges. As they move into Stage 5 (Years 9 & 10) and 6 (Years 11 & 12) they become increasingly sophisticated in their ability to design and produce solutions for authentic needs and opportunities. Our programs intertwine the theory of knowledge with its practical applications making meaningful connections with why they learn what they learn. We deliver experiences in a way that honours our Christian faith and where applicable bring in biblical perspective into learning.
