A Thinking School

We explored several skills as a way of encouraging increased resilience, independence and to raise standards and decided to embark of the journey of becoming a Thinking School.

Thinking is a core skill. Thinking will boost the quality of all learning. A student’s thinking will determine his/her deep residual embedding of the learning that is taking place. Given that this embedding is one of the critical drivers for quality learning, we can hardly refer to thinking as a luxury. It’s a necessity.
