Future Based Inquiry and Innovation- FBII

Academic Excellence Program

This academic excellence program challenges students academically, builds self-esteem and leadership skills, whilst preparing students for further education.

This program aims to foster the academic and personal development of students within a caring environment, assisting them to explore their potential and achieve outcomes at the highest possible level.

  • Provide students with choices around what they would like to learn.
  • Adopt a more globalised perspective with a cross-curricular approach, mapping learning objectives, assessment that integrates project development.
  • Support students to demonstrate improved attitudes towards learning, exhibit deeper engagement, develop more self-reliance, coupled with collaborative teamwork skills in the pursuit of learning excellence.
  • Students engage with digital resources, spaces, with a focus on innovation.
  • Develop critical and creative think skills to foster curiosity and innovation.
  • Foster community engagement and connections.

Students will be engaged in a variety of learning experiences, including Problem Based Learning. Students work on a project over an extended period - from a week, up to a semester - that engages them in inquiry, solving a real-world problem, or answering a complex question. They demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience. As a result, students develop deep content knowledge as well as critical thinking, creativity, and communication skills in the context of doing an authentic, meaningful project.

"The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out!"
