Inquiry


The school has adopted an integrated inquiry approach to engage students actively in their own learning.
Inquiries are initiated by students (with teacher guidance) with an aim to move students from current understandings to new and deeper levels of understanding. Students are invited to investigate significant issues by formulating questions, designing research, undertaking experimentation, observation and analysis. The inquiry process aims to support students in making their own meaning.


Foundation - Year 3 classes and Year 4 - 6 classes work together to inquire into the same broad topic and generally undertake a new area of focus each term. For example Foundation - Year 2 might be investigating the topic of “Community” while Year 3-6 are exploring “Structures.”
