Learning at Hillbrook
'Curriculum' isn't just the subjects studied: it’s all the intended learning experiences that students undertake at the school, in and beyond the classroom. The Hillbrook curriculum is based on a balance of learning experiences drawn from our ever evolving understanding of how young people learn.
Support for students at Hillbrook takes many forms. Staff accept collective responsibility for all students in our community, whether or not those students are in their classes. We also have programs designed for students who have a real passion for their subject area and wish to specialise even further.
During Philosophical Inquiry, students are considering big issues fundamental to the way we live our lives. The questions discussed are raised by students themselves. They inquire together to search for answers or to try and make some progress towards truth. The process is democratic, ethical, respectful and thoroughly enjoyable.
