Boys Prep  October 12, 2017 | Academics | Diane Fraser and the Grade Heads

On Wednesday morning, parents were invited to an open morning to see Thinking Skills in action. St Peter’s Prep Schools are one of the only schools who are “Thinking Skills Accredited” and we are known as a Thinking School. We wanted to share how the Thinking Tools are used throughout the grades in every subject. In the Information Age that we live in, critical thinking is a must-have skill for all of us to live happy, meaningful and successful lives.

Parents could wander around to the various grades for the morning and listen in, witness and actually use some of the tools.

Education in the 21st Century

Boys Prep  November 12, 2015 | Headmaster | Rob Macaulay

I have recently enjoyed reading a book by Tony Wagner and Ted Dintersmith entitled “Most Likely to Succeed – Preparing our Kids for the Innovation Era.”  The authors of the book, one from the education field and the other a leading venture capitalist, are calling for a revamp of the American education system.  They argue that, as was shared by Greg Royce at the beginning of this year, traditional schooling was engineered more than a century ago to produce a workforce for a world and economy that no longer exists.

It has been interesting watching the boys develop their organisational skills this week. The variable nature of the activities enabled boys to focus on their interests for the most part. The boys were actively involved in researching, assimilation of information and the culmination of a set goal.
