Children in the Adolescent Period
The focus for these adolescent students is on the development of the personality, on moral and social development and their preparation for participation in society as future adults through both theoretical knowledge and practical experience
The lower secondary group has up to 30 students with generalist teachers assisted by specialist teachers in certain subject areas such as English, Mathematics, Art, Science, German.Environmental and direct social contributions to immediate, local and global areas of concern are vital to the adolescent development. Their finely-honed sense of justice takes a wide focus as global issues, such as climate change, poverty, injustice demand their action.
Students combine academic study with practical work. They continue to work at their own pace and interests and have the guidance and assistance of their teacher to devise an academic program. This is combined with timetabled group lessons and the opportunity for co-operative and self-directed work.
Students work by cleaning the school's floors after school hours. The school pays the group for this collective effort and the money is used to finance one overseas trip for all Pre-IB and IB Year 1 students every two years. Secondary students participate in all areas of school life, contributing their time, energy and creativity. Each year they produce a Quiz Night for the school community and this has become a most eagerly anticipated event.
