It is important for all our families to be assured of our point of difference as a school, because we certainly are unique and different. The School has been approached by Cambridge University to contribute to an international Innovative Institutions campaign, and they chose us because they have recognised CCPS as an innovative leader internationally. If you’re an experienced campaigner at CCPS, you may recall that the School was published in the international Journal of Creativity and Innovation for our programme of learning using our natural environment and hands on practical learning experiences for the children. Our wonderful permaculture garden, its Club activities, and the classroom lessons across the curriculum from this garden, represent the direct and real world learning that we offer, complemented by nationally acclaimed literacy and numeracy learning achievements in our Junior School’s NAPLAN Learning Gains. The combination of care and attention to detail by our Teachers, with our magnificent open, green campus, with light, airy, air-conditioned, technology rich wireless connection, really is second to none. Our ability to quickly put in place support and specific learning experiences for individual children is because we are caring, smaller and flexible, with experienced educators, and totally independent of ‘Head Office’. Our fees are very ‘moderate’ by local and state standards, although there are some schools where fees are lower. There are schools locally whose fees are substantially higher, with Learning Gains only comparable to our students’ progress, at best. We take pride in having a campus where older students nurture and help the littlest ones to learn.
