Our school has a curriculum for life, one aimed at engaging students to address real world problems, issues important to humanity, and questions that really matter. This is a dramatic departure from the factory-model education of the past. It will increasingly move away from textbook driven, teacher centred, paper and pencil schooling, introducing new ways of understanding the dusty concepts of knowledge and the educated person. What is our goal? Our goal is to change the way people think about education. Our teachers will deliver schooling and educating for: Critical thinking and problem solving Collaboration across networks and leading by influence Agility and adaptability; anti-fragile and sustainable learning Initiative and entrepreneurialism Effective oral and written communication Accessing and analysing information Curiosity and imagination Today we must see learners in a new context from the past, where learners went to school, spent a specified amount of time in certain courses, received passing grades and graduated. We must maintain student interest by helping them see how learning prepares them for life in the real world. We must instil curiosity, which is fundamental to lifelong learning. We must be flexible in how we teach. We must excite learners to become even more resourceful so that they will continue to learn outside the formal school day.
