MODEL OF LEARNING
Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School presents a balanced educational program that provides students with every opportunity to excel academically and as an individual. Our model of learning is based on the philosophy that quality teaching achieves outstanding results when it is delivered in a community environment that values human relationships and pastoral care. Through our model of learning we develop student ability in three dimensions: AcademicA structured curriculum which challenges and supports students in their ability to use the skills of language mathematical and verbal reasoning logic memory and processing of information. Lindisfarne seeks to eliminate underachievement by raising the expectations of students and their potential to succeed. CreativeThe ability to think and act with fluency innovation openness and originality. These qualities are developed through a broad curriculum which recognises each student's strengths and abilities. EthicalAs an Anglican school Lindisfarne believes in tradition and scripture but we are also guided by reason and experience. We provide students with the ability to think and act with moral insight – ethical inquiry that is the fundamental context of all learning. Through these three pillars of learning Lindisfarne creates meaning and purpose for students while they experience spirituality within Anglican practice and tradition. Our goal is to ensure they lead lives that are productive and fulfilled.
