Our Learning Groups

Building our school as a connected and caring community is central to promoting quality learning outcomes for all our children. We deeply believe that strong, respectful and effective relationships across our school is the key to our children growing as confident and resilient learners.  An aspect of that connectedness is reflected in the names of our Learning Groups.  Each year, a theme is selected.  Usually this theme is informed by the United Nations’ International Year (for example, in 2017 the children named our Learning Groups on the UN theme of Sustainable Tourism for Development) .

In 2018, the United Nations did not declare a specific topic for an International Year.  Our school therefore chose its theme based on “Fresh Tastes”, in initiative about healthy eating and lifestyles.  Children in each Learning Group researched the theme and voted for their own Group’s name.
