Syndicate Goal

Our aim in Syndicate D is develop an atmosphere of inclusion and acceptance of others. School should be a place where everyone feels safe, valued and are a part of the experience together. Helping students to understand themselves as learners and accept differences and abilities in others is a vital part of this dynamic.


We want to develop students who are curious, and have the skills to question the world around them and challenge themselves to strive further, all the while becoming more resilient and independent in their learning.


Our teachers and students will work collaboratively to achieve this goal utilising our digital tools, our collective expertise and the strengths from the community around us.

ALJ Synopsis

Is the sky the limit?

People often place limits on themselves, either physical or mental limits, some limits are imposed upon us by society, or by what we believe to be true in science or the world around us. Science has broken limits every century as more knowledge is acquired through people questioning limits or things that are known.


This year we in Syndicate D will ask the questions:

  • What are the aspects of ourselves or the world around us that impose restriction/limits on what can be achieved?
  • Is a limit able to be broken, how does this happen? Who has done this?
  • How are we limiting the future of our environment with the ways we are behaving/ living?


Questioning, curiosity and creativity constantly work together to push the limits of what is possible. These are aspects we would like to work with our students to explore...with the aim of finding out what is truly possible for them.
