HOW DO WE LEARN?
The Pasadena curriculum is built around all students having a range of opportunities to learn with an emphasis on the basics and a strong focus on high levels of achievement to nurture personal excellence.
Importance is placed on developing the whole child considering their social, emotional and cultural needs in addition to academic achievement. Our curriculum provides a comprehensive inquiry based approach that personalises learning for the individual student by ensuring they see relevance, significance and connection in their learning.
Modern Learning Environment equipment and resources are utilised to give students a choice in where and how they work related to the task they are completing. Students are also given the option of bringing their own device which enables them to research, communicate and share their learning anytime, anywhere within in the school day.
Class programmes – What do we teach?
At Pasadena we teach through a conceptual approach. The concepts run through all subjects in the school and change every term. On the first Wednesday of each term a class newsletter is sent home which has an overview of what is being taught for the term and the key dates.
