What is it all about?

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day - Dr Seuss

Our unique and caring school is a boutique school catering for the needs of each of our children. Our strong educational philosophy is in tune with the aspirations of the Victorian Curriculum and has led to creative and challenging programs underpinned with a guiding ethos which nurtures imagination, inquisitiveness and creativity in support of 'the whole child'.

 

We are delighted to have pursued practices which honour the whole child and value laughter and happiness as a necessary precursor to real learning, real literacy and real numeracy.

 

We have responded positively to the urgings of Sir Ken Robinson and Richard Gerver to honour creativity and imagination and curiosity.

 

We have established a special Thinking Award, which we've called 'The Diffendoofer Award'. This prized award is awarded to three students displaying curiosity and imagination and creativity at a very high level.

 

Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! is a children's book credited to Dr. Seuss "with some help by Jack Prelutsky and Lane Smith". Search out the book and you'll understand what we mean!
