Syndicate Goal

Our aim in Syndicate A is to create and maintain a classroom environment where every child is valued and encouraged to reach their full potential through authentic learning experiences.

 

We believe it is imperative to work collaboratively with students to establish an environment in which they feel that sharing ideas, exchanging information, valuing other's opinions and where making mistakes and learning form these mistakes is an integral part of the learning process.

 

We aim to provide regular opportunities for the students to work together as it is our belief this helps them learn from each other, in addition to learning to understand that everyone has different points of views.

ALJ Synopsis

What is it to be human?

We are looking to explore and embrace all that is good about humanity. Our fertile question for the year is "What is it to be human?" so we need to understand the traits of humanity and how we grow, learn and progress individually and collectively as a society.


Through our inquiry into humanity we hope to unpack what it means to have: resilience, perseverance, philanthropy, charity, compassion, experienced failure, success, taken risks, given service and creativity.
