Core Thinking Skills

An effective thinker has a wide range of skills to help them to create meaning, gain understanding, make judgments, make good decisions, self-analyse and reflect.

These are the skills that we need to equip our students with so that they are able to make a difference in not only their own working lives, but in the lives of those with whom they will work.

In this, the 21st Century, we need to look at methods of thinking that are understood and evolutionary, rather than relying on those methods that are instituted impulsively and are revolutionary.

Our aim is to develop problem solvers, who are innovative. Students need to develop their creative skills and their sense of adventure, trusting their own value systems. They should wish to make a difference in our world and to accomplish something of significance.
