Living School

Living School is different – we view the future through a progressive lens. We adopt a new vision on how to teach with impact to empower and engage. We focus on the learning process:

  1. to form connections rationally and intuitively so each student can engage – independently and collectively – with the bigger picture (THINK);
  2. to apply effort to master concepts to understand  (KNOW); and
  3. to learn in context so students experience the importance and relevance of what is being taught (ACT).


Real teaching focuses on what really matters, the threads that weave together the bigger picture beyond the specks of subject content knowledge.

How do we soulfully, with great care, wholly influence a person’s development positively?

As educators, how do we prepare the seeds for a positive relationship? How do we teach to the personal needs of each learner under our care?

Personal learning means we ‘know’ our students so we can guide them to know more about themselves. There is a difference between personalised learning and personal learning: personalised is what we do to them as individuals; personal is what they need to do for themselves.

Living School has purpose – and plans around intentional design to balance interest-based learning with guided challenges. 

Our intent and guiding question resonates: Is this learning life-worthy?
