Blue Gum Community School
Type of School: Small, independent, secular school for 0–16 year olds: Playgroups (0–2); Pre-School (3–5); Primary School (5–12); Middle/High School (12–16). Small classes ensure a personalised, strengths-based approach to learning. Strong emphasis on real-life project-based research and applying the scientific method. 21st century skills e.g. applied creative and critical thinking, nurtured via everyday immersion in traditional and non-traditional areas, such as The Arts. Outdoor Education valued as part of our Australian inheritance and in producing resilient independent thinkers, connected and committed to the natural world. Recognised internationally as an exemplar of ‘slow education’, seen as an antidote to the fast-paced, high-pressure, anxiety-producing modern world. Students value being listened to and being active players in negotiating their research explorations.
