The school’s purpose is to provide students with the skills required for life-long learning. The staff concurs that through embedding the concept of responsible learners in teaching and learning, a thinking culture within the school and the school community will evolve. The essence of this purpose relies on teachers accepting that to achieve their maximum potential, students need to learn “how” to learn, not what to learn. ‘The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.’ Marcel Proust
