“We can see that technology is evolving and changing our world at an intensely rapid pace, especially when we consider that the internet only became operational just under 40 years ago.
“Adapting to this speed of change and need for change is embedded in our school’s DNA, and I’m confident that our children will challenge Darwin’s statement; they will be mentally fit, creatively intelligent, and will have the adaptable academic resilience to navigate and impact the future of our planet,” says Pascoe.
The school promotes creative thinking, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Analysing, applying and testing their thinking are added components of the new STEAM Lab, where robotics and coding activities take place in a fun, hands-on environment.
