The Silkwood Experience

Silkwood is a small independent secular school catering for girls and boys from Prep to Year 7 with a high school due to commence in 2013. The Silkwood approach to education is imaginative artistic and holistic; empowering young people to envision positive futures in which they feel confident and proactive towards creating. Our education focus underpinned by educational research is developmental and student-centred. The school uses innovative contemporary systems of management and has a professional talented team dedicated to our vision of being the ‘best school we can be’.

Discovering possibilities . Realising potential

Silkwood’s groundbreaking approach to education centres on demanding academic content taught through an integrated approach which aims to inspire and enhance learners. Our goal is to foster a spirit of inquiry and a love of learning that prepares children to thrive as adults in the challenging complex 21st-century world. Underpinning our education focus is the motto ‘learners learn best from learners’. This motto transforms our practice building a development ethos: ‘Silkwood aims to improve every day’. The students’ learning is enhanced by the teachers through their desire to become the best educators they can be . learning is who we are - learning is what we do! Systems and resources which keep all areas of the school on a path of improvement support Silkwood’s learning program. Silkwood is proud of its student-centred curriculum which meets all the governmental educational requirements. We value and acknowledge the influence of the following developmental educators to the Silkwood program: Rudolf Steiner friedrich Froebel jean Piaget erik Erikson jean Gebser Urie Bronfenbrenner and Lawrence Kohlberg.These elements – and many more - contribute to making the ‘Silkwood Educational Experience’ like no other.
