INQUIRY

At St. Paul’s, an Inquiry Approach to learning is developed through a Sense of Spirituality, Justice and Diversity.

These essential concepts underpin curriculum design and learning about:
Health and Wellbeing
Science and Discovery
Our Natural World
History and Tradition                                                                                                                                                             Design and Innovation                                                                                                                                                     Belonging

We believe that all learning is inter-related and that skills, concepts, values and knowledge can be transferred from one area to the other. Inquiry based units of work are not only integrated across all Victorian Curriculum Learning areas, but are based on student-centred inquiry and research.

The units of inquiry are developed by teachers and students. In this process, we establish what each child knows, what knowledge they have access to, and what knowledge they can build upon.

Together with our students, we explore the world in which we live, ask questions, make discoveries and develop new understandings.
