Launch of ‘Learning in Depth’

Following the success and enjoyment of the ‘Learning in Depth’ project taken on by 5th and 6th class in 2013 2014, this great initiative will once again be launched this coming Thursday at 2.15pm in the P.E. hall.

The project will be taken on by both 5th and 6th class where they will be offered many choices of topics for the coming school year 2014 2015. Inspired by the educationalist Kieran Egan, the ‘Learning in Depth’ course has been taken on in schools all over the world.

Advocates of this approach argue that it teaches research and inquiry skills, helps students discover the power of sticking with something for a longer period of time, that it build confidence, that it helps students cultivate creativity and imagination, and that students learn any number of other skills along the way to becoming experts about their topic.

Feel free to come along and join us for the launch of this great learning experience.
