“The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual’s own reason and critical analysis.

~ His Holiness The Dalai Lama

Where valid reasoning, meditation and creativity work in union throughout the curriculum.

Our curriculum is centred in inquiry-based learning, incorporating the creative arts, meditation, logic and debate, secular ethics and conflict resolution training in an integrated approach to education.

Our programmes support the pursuit of excellence in literacy, numeracy, social studies, science and technology and conform to the Australian Curriculum.

The curriculum includes English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities (History & Geography), Languages, Music, Performing & Fine Arts, Environmental Studies, Computers & Communications Technology (ICT), Physical Education (PE), Outdoor Ed and Health.

These studies are integrated with daily reflection periods to promote self-awareness and emotional development through our Awareness Programme.

Through these various programmes and activities, we provide a nurturing and inspiring creative learning environment that supports a spirit of deep inquiry into the nature of our being and its relationship to our world.
