GIS Learning Vision
Vision for Learning
At GIS we approach learning as a personal and lifelong pursuit of social, emotional and intellectual development. We believe that every learner is gifted with boundless potential and that our role as educators must be to awaken the various forms of intelligence and spark curiosity about everything in the real and abstract world. Rich and authentic learning experiences are used to cultivate innate talents, provide opportunities to pursue interests and passions, both inside and outside of the classroom, and strive for excellence; all in the spirit of respect, integrity, and well-being.
Learning at GIS
Drivers of Learning
We are dedicated to the holistic development of our learners. This is captured through four distinct drivers of learning that permeate all aspects of learning at GIS.
Developing Well-Rounded Individuals
Our Learner Skills represents the unique profile of a GIS learner across the length and breadth of the school. It embodies the key skills and competencies that transcend the individual areas of the curriculum, and allow learners to make connections across a wide array of disciplines which are vital and aspirational elements of 21st-century learning. By encouraging a deeper understanding of how to think differently, learn together, be resilient, ask questions and get involved, our learners become true global thinkers, adaptable life long learners and well rounded people in preparation for the wider world and the future that awaits them.
We leverage the use of technology to enhance the opportunities for our learners to deepen and redefine their learning experience. Technology is used to enable our learners to think differently by being creative and critical thinkers in which they are encouraged to take risks to solve problems through imaginative and innovative approaches. We also encourage our learners to learn together by providing a range of methods for online communication to improve connection, interactions, and collaboration as an integral part of our learning culture.
