Breadth of Learning

Breadth of Learning

Breadth of learning

What we want children and students to learn is one of the questions that schools and school systems have always focused on. It’s a question that challenges governments, school systems, schools and teachers even more as we head towards the second quarter of the 21st century with all of its uncertainties and a world that is flexing everywhere.

Our position is very clear. We want our children to experience an education that provides learning of breadth and depth.

Breadth means learning that covers not just knowledge but skills and understanding. Of course, we want our children to know things but we also want them to be able to do things and develop the depth to see the underlying sense of things.

Breadth means a broad academic curriculum. That means science, technology, engineering and maths. It means first and second language learning. It also means history, geography, art, music, physical education and more. We want our children and students to be able to see the world through many lenses.

Breadth also means learning beyond the academic. We are working hard to develop young people who can confidently take their place in and help to develop their world over the next 50 years. We want our children and students to be good socially; to experience their various worlds as different therefore equal; to be emotionally at ease with themselves, confident on their own and with others.

Depth means having the opportunity to explore all of the breadth in detail. We want to give our children and students time to become thinkers, time to reflect as well as respond, time to work slowly as well as quickly.
