At Prince of Peace, we believe it is vital to nurture a love of learning in all our students and to support them to acquire the skills, values and knowledge needed for modern life. To this end, we endeavour to ensure the key competencies of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity are woven into all learning.
We believe each student’s educational experience should be characterised by three guiding principles that promote contemporary capabilities:
Excellence through honour – we want students to pursue personal excellence, to honour each other, to achieve their God-given potential and to give of their best.
Learning with purpose – we wish to prepare all students to become lifelong learners who are creative, critical thinkers, collaborators and communicators, and who are multi-skilled, adaptable and innovative.
Growth through challenge – we believe it is important that students are provided with opportunities to push themselves and be challenged to develop mastery in a supportive environment.
We aim to create learners who are:
- self-directed, insightful investigators and learners
- discerning, resourceful problem solvers and implementers
- adept, creative producers and contributors
- open, responsive communications and facilitators
- principled, resilient leaders and collaborators
- caring, steadfast supporters and advocates
There are five central elements to our positive learning culture:
- high expectations
- positive relationships
- lifelong learning
- responsive teaching
- powerful partnerships.
Our Teaching and Learning Framework provides more information about these elements.
