Years 5 to 6 – Inquiry with Initiative

Knowing himself

Enabling the unique character of your son to become more clearly understood by himself and those who teach him. Encouraging him to become excited by all things as he explores the world.

In this phase, the boys further develop their own initiative and leadership skills. Through programs, such as Outdoor Education at Kooringal, the Year 5 Black Swan State Theatre experience, the Year 6 Sailing experience and the Year 6 Canberra Tour, boys are able to discover their individuality and become more independent.

Learning becomes more inquiry-based, with boys taking greater responsibility and ownership for their own learning and using greater initiative.

PSA sports, music ensembles and House leadership roles provide boys with opportunities to grow in confidence and become part of the greater School community.
