Our Vision for Learning

This vision is exemplified in all that we do and are at Sunshine Coast Grammar School. We have made a purposeful commitment to high quality education and our staff are passionate about their own professional practice to ensure our school is well equipped to support student achievement in all endeavours.

 

At Grammar we have a mindset for the future and a vision for powerful learning – creating ethical, responsible and caring citizens of the world

OUR VALUES

With our total commitment to positive, professional relationships, we value:

Wellbeing

Courage | Resilience | Integrity | Empathy | Relationships

Addressing all dimensions of wellness (emotional, physical, nutritional, environmental and spiritual) in our lives builds a holistic sense of wellbeing and fulfillment. Wellbeing and Resilience are enhanced with a focus on critical life skills such as; the ability to recognise and regulate one’s own emotions, establish and maintain positive and respectful relationships, make responsible decisions, effectively problem solve and apply individual character strengths.

Through these critical skills, we cultivate a culture where all are motivated to pursue their purpose and thrive in an everchanging world.

Community

Care | Partnerships | Service

We all contribute to build an inclusive community of belonging, connection, mutual care and respect. We all participate in the community at a range of levels including the development of partnerships and service from local, to global.

Mindset and Skillset

Creativity | Growth Mindset | Curiosity | Success

Our learning environment promotes curiosity and creativity, as well as growing confident, capable and successful individuals. The world our children will inherit is a world of complexity and ever-changing innovation. A world where it is insufficient to have knowledge and ideas without a positive growth mindset and skill set to apply knowledge and implement ideas. It is essential to foster the cultivation of an adaptive mindset and skillset set, that together with knowledge from traditional disciplines will equip all to embrace change as opportunity.

Christian Faith in Action

Gratitude | Forgiveness | Love | Humility | Compassion | Honour

At the heart of our Christian faith in action are our six values underpinning Christian identity. With a strong focus on relationships, we encourage all to live with honour, humility, compassion, gratitude, love and forgiveness.

OUR VISION FOR LEARNING

The following pedagogical principles translate our vision and values into school wide teaching and learning practice.

Personalised

Learning is personalised to increase engagement, achievement and personal growth. 

A commitment to recognising, appreciating, and catering for the variety of characteristics that make individuals unique is key to learner success. Tailoring student learning matches learning needs and supports the development of personal passions and interests.

Engaging

When learning is relevant and students are engaged in class, they learn more. It is vital that teachers create the right classroom climate for learning: raising student expectations; developing a rapport with students; establishing routines; challenging students to participate and take risks. These all affect how much their students engage and learn.

Reflective

Reflection is an integral part of the learning process. It allows students to learn more about themselves and how they learn. Reflection provides an opportunity for feedback and feedforward conversations, as well as the creation of meaningful connections for deep learning.

Connected

Learning at Grammar is designed as a continuous pathway. This implies whole school alignment of curriculum and pedagogy, and a shared responsibility for student learning realised through a strong team approach. 

Meaningful connections are also the result of connecting with prior learning and the application of new knowledge into different contexts. 

In a digitised world, learning is connected through technology.

We are also connected as a Grammar learning community through positive, professional relationships, and a personal relationship with Christ. As global citizens we aim to develop internationally minded people who, recognise their common Humanity, embed sustainable practices, and help to create a better and more peaceful world.

Testimonials

I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.

Testimonials

Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
