Principal’s address

Ms Monagle presented with Harry the Hawk on the topic of our Learning Framework, using the posters that are placed in every classroom as a visual reminder. They reminded students about how we use the hand to represent and remember the different aspects of the framework including:

  • our attitude and perceptions
  • our habits of mind.
  • acquiring knowledge
  • extending our knowledge
  • using knowledge meaningfully

Ms Monagle spoke in more depth about the two types of knowledge we acquire as part of Dimension 2: declarative knowledge (facts, etc.) and procedural knowledge (such as knowledge about a skill that requires practice).
