At St Dominic's, students learn through a discovery (Prep - 2) or inquiry (Years 3 - 6) process.
Discovery Learning (Prep-2)
Play supports the development of higher order thinking and 21st century skills. The ability to collaborate, cooperate, problem solve, act responsibly, use critical and creative thinking skills are the keys to successful learning. Through Discovery teachers strategically plan and interact with children to develop these skills. Children engage with this learning whilst exploring and developing their ideas about the world around them. By allowing children choices they build their understandings about their world through activities and contexts that are meaningful to them.
We believe an effective Discovery program:
Inquiry Learning (Years 3-6)
