The rest needs to be explained to class  

everything we do should be open,

    • design an envirethical curriculum with the students
      • and welcome unexpected detours
  • Student projects organised around problems, projects, and questions
    • Students assist with the outcomes or standards that inform those lessons
  • Allowed to make mistakes and be assisted to put them right
  • We will be encouraged to develop intrinsic motivation
  • Homework -
  • Grades -
  • Tests - Government requirement in state schools
    • Information collected shared with students and parent
    • Reassure parents and government that students are learning in maths, reading, writing.

        • Nor are they indicative of how successful you will become as an adult


  • Exploration and discovery in a supportive and enriching environment based on the interests of the students
