NEXT OPEN DAY - WEDNESDAY 14 AUGUST 2019

 

OUR VALUES

With our total commitment to positive, professional relationships, we value:

The spiritual basis of our school

All that we do is grounded in Christian Faith and action.

A mindset to the future

Contribution to today’s and tomorrow’s society, preparation for digital citizenship, informed consumers in our media rich environment and awareness of global issues are responsibilities fundamental to our school.

Each individual

The recognition and celebration of each individual is central to uncovering and developing passion and potential. Each child’s social and emotional wellbeing is supported and nurtured.

Our strong sense of community

The belonging, care and mutual respect fostered among all members of the Grammar community provides an important basis for our future-focused and interactive approaches to learning.

The concept of empowerment

Students are encouraged and supported to take control of their own learning. Love of learning, enabling each student to achieve the highest possible standards in his/her learning endeavour, is our emphasis.

Our unique and natural environment

Our environment encompasses beautiful natural surrounds, excellent facilities, high standards, caring and supportive relationships, and outstanding, safe learning spaces.

OUR PRINCIPLES & VALUES

The following pedagogical principles translate our vision and values into school wide teaching and learning practice.

1. Principle of difference

A commitment to recognising, appreciating, and catering for the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique is key to learner success. Learning at Grammar is designed to ensure that all students have the opportunity to realise their personal interests and individual potential.

2. Principle of relevance

Relevant, meaningful and engaging learning together with intelligent approaches to assessment connect learning and the learner to authentic contexts. Assessment is authentic when it produces a true reflection of a student’s capabilities. This includes the appropriate selection and application of digital tools to transform learning, engage and energise students and inspire deeper thinking.

Learning is active, collaborative and connected, where the spirit of innovation creates learning opportunities that require students to think. Autonomous and independent learners engage in active thinking. The processes of active thinking are: knowledge acquisition; analytical, creative, critical, reflective and innovative thinking with application to new situations; together with ethical and global perspectives.

Testimonials

I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.

Testimonials

Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
