Educating the whole child
The world our students will enter into as adults will require them to think both critically and creatively, evaluate massive amounts of information, solve complex problems and communicate well. A strong foundation in reading, writing, maths and other subjects is still needed; however, this alone is not sufficient for lifelong success.
What is needed to be a successful learner?
A student who enters school healthy and safe and is ready to learn
A student who feels connected to school is more likely to stay in school
A student who has access to challenging and engaging academic programs is better prepared for further education, work and civic life
We believe the five components of Educating the Whole Child should work together, not in isolation. At Tarwin Lower Primary School, we deliver a balanced approach to education, to better prepare our students for their future.
