High quality, transformational learning and teaching is core to the distinctive boys education offered at The Scots College. The philosophical framework underpinning our approach to boys’ education is articulated in full in The Vocation of a Presbyterian School: Brave Hearts, Bold Minds.
Our students live in a globally interconnected world where digital technologies are rapidly disrupting and reshaping the world of work. The valued skills of the early 21st century are complex communication, creativity, collaboration and critical reflection.
"The one really competitive skill is the skill of being able to learn. It is the skill of being able not to give the right answer to questions about what you were taught in school, but to make the right response to situations that are outside the scope of what you were taught. We need to produce people who know how to act when they’re faced with situations for which they were not specifically prepared" (Papert, 1998).
