Learning to Learn
The Langar curriculum utilizes children’s natural curiosity and seeks to develop time and self-management through problem solving, enquiry and investigation. We inspire children to collaborate, co-operate and reflect through talk, and lead them to apply their skills, knowledge and understanding through a range of real life learning experiences.
The Langar curriculum is built on a core set of Christian values that provide a moral compass and a common language of behaviour for the school family and wider community. The values equip our children with social and relationship skills, intelligences and attitudes to succeed at school and throughout their lives.
