  • School Philosophy, Culture and Ethos

    At Canberra Primary, we seek to provide a quality holistic educational experience for all our pupils with the aim of developing and nurturing the capacity of each child to the fullest potential. The belief that every Canberrian can succeed, regardless of his/her starting point, has been instrumental is shaping the culture and teaching and learning experiences for our pupils. These experiences encapsulate the Canberra Experience that we pursue for our pupils.

    The Canberra Experience consists of three different experiences which every pupil will experience in their 6-years learning journey. These learner experiences are captured in the Discoverer, Attuned Learner and Global Learner outcomes which encompass the literacy outcomes of the 21st century competencies skills. As a Discoverer, 'We are the World', a journey from broad-based discovery to convergence of understanding. As an Attuned Learner, 'We know the World', a journey of finding meanings, values and connections. As a Global Learner, 'We create the World', a journey of building trusted communities for collaboration and creativity.

    Values also play a major role in shaping and supporting the development of our pupils to be 'innovative, caring and responsible citizens who strive for excellence through self-discipline and teamwork'. A values-based education is core to our pupils' holistic development and remains central to their Canberra Experience.
