Curriculum, Learning and Teaching
Canberra Grammar School has a proud tradition of academic success, with 90% of our students choosing to attend university and further their education.
Our students are encouraged to develop critical-thinking capacities to have the confidence to lead, and to find creative solutions in a complex world.
EDUCATION FOR A GLOBAL FUTURE
We focus on an educational experience that values the arts and sciences, and believe young people should cultivate a sense of responsibility to act judiciously and be of service to others. There is a focus on excellence, while also recognising that learning, at all levels of ability, should be celebrated and supported.
The curriculum at Canberra Grammar School prepares young people to face the challenges of a globalising world.
The School provides a responsive environment to all students, including those needing additional assistance and those with exceptional abilities. Graduates are internationally minded and technologically adept, ready to become future leaders both regionally and globally.
ACADEMIC CONFERENCES AND PARENT COMMUNICATION
The School encourages our senior students to become self-directed learners, working with their teachers to set learning goals. Parents and students are invited to participate in Academic Conferences with teachers to review academic progress, allowing the opportunity to plan and implement strategies to assist in achieving these goals.
TEACHING AND INNOVATION
Twenty first century schooling demands light flexible solutions to technology in the classroom. At Canberra Grammar School we are looking at how students can be connected to the wider world of learning through a dynamic wireless network well suited to the range of devices the students and staff have access to and will need in the future.
As light mobile computing options grow we are positioning both our teaching approaches and our approach to how students learn to take advantage of global resources and to develop an international outlook for our students that extends beyond their schooling.
