Teaching and Learning

"With compassionate hearts and enquiring minds we strive to learn well, live wisely, serve others and honour God"

Lakes Grammar's Vision Statement guides our approaches to teaching and learning. Teachers aim to help students develop ways to learn effectively and deeply by taking responsibility for their learning; by realising that their efforts play a big part in their achievement; by developing learning habits such as perseverance, managing distractions, making links between concepts, reflecting on their learning, planning their learning and learning constructively with others.

Teachers use up-to-date technology to enhance students' learning, including the use of computers and interactive whiteboards in every classroom. We are actively investigating the use of mobile devices in classrooms to facilitate a "learn any where, any time" approach to learning.

As an Anglican school we believe that knowledge alone is inadequate to live a fulfilled life. Wisdom is the application of knowledge to living a "good life" and for us that is guided by Christian understandings of our world and our purpose in the world.

Lakes Grammar follows NSW Board of Studies K-12 Curriculum that leads to the award of the School Certificate and the Higher School Certificate.

Students are at school to learn and ultimately to achieve well in the HSC. An excellent education is a crucial foundation for a satisfying and enriching life. At Lakes Grammar we aim to assist students to be the best they can be and to achieve the best they can. We do this in the context of positive support for students' academic growth and their wellbeing.
