Curriculum, Learning and Teaching
A WORLD OF DISCOVERY AND LEARNING
At Canberra Grammar School our students learn how to learn – to be adaptable, resilient, reflective, and to have the capacity to research, think, act and communicate their ideas in multimodal ways. We provide our students with a core of essential learning that leads to a depth of understanding across major areas of human knowledge with a substantial emphasis on creating a solid foundation in English, Mathematics and Information Technology.
A Canberra Grammar School education prepares students to be intelligent, innovative and international; to be responsible and compassionate leaders who place the welfare of others before self and who are willing to embrace the challenges of our century as opportunities to make a difference.
Our teachers embrace a collaborative approach to learning, supporting diverse interests and enabling rich learning experiences for our students. As our attention is focused on our students, our curricula and pedagogical decisions flow from this focus point.
Our teachers observe, listen and research alongside the students, encouraging them to be inquirers – to wonder and pose questions with many opportunities for critical, analytical, creative and reflective thinking, enriched through reciprocal interactions between peers, teachers and the broader community.
We believe optimal learning outcomes require strong home-school partnerships. Accordingly, we provide clear and continuous communication and encourage parent participation in the learning environment.
