Prep to Year 2 St Joseph’s Primary School – One Day School
Throughout time there have been great thinkers, people that today we remember; we celebrate their incredible thoughts and ideas, some have changed our lives more than we could have ever imagined. They chose to entertain the idea that their thoughts could be original and they chose not to tether their minds.
The word Enterceler is born from two root words; enter meaning to go in and celer meaning faster; words that provide encouragement to be all that we can be.
As an Enterceler you are part of a community of gifted thinkers; together we will venture towards discovery by entering into our own learning environment; a place where you can make choices about your learning; where you can choose to pose the questions rather than answer questions; a place where you can choose to don your cape and fly; a place where the focus is on your chosen pace for learning new skills and developing new ideas of your very own; a place where you will be nurtured and challenged to stretch your own thinking.
We do this by offering a learning environment that understands the differences in children with advanced development.
An environment where we provide:
- A shared journey with children who have similar learning needs
- Exploration that extends and enriches individual interests and supports the finding of new ones
- Learning that includes complexity and allows for deep thinking and advanced interests
- Opportunities to extend reading, writing and maths as formal skills aligned to the Australian Curriculum
- Group participation that supports building social skills and emotional maturity
- Experiences that encourage creativity
- Engagement to face challenges and take risks in learning new information and skills
- The encouragement for children to be rich, powerful and independent learners
