Changing the way we think about education
So much has changed in our world. And it is time to change the way we think about education too.
“Contact with nature can enhance creativity, bolster mood, lower stress, improve mental acuity, well-being and productivity, cultivate social connectedness, and promote physical activity. It also has myriad educational benefits for teaching and learning.“
– Tonia Gray Associate Professor at the Centre for Educational Research, Western Sydney University.
Our education model adapts to the concept of home-based learning. While the majority of people are familiar with only one style of education (the traditional system of textbooks, desks in row and standardized testing), there are a wide array of other educational philosophies. These other methods include Waldorf, Montessori, Charlotte Mason, project-based learning, interest-led learning and so much more.
Education development plan
Our education model prioritizes the process of attaining knowledge over the memorization of any specific knowledge.
We put at the heart of our learning are our permaculture ethics and principles. We facilitate our students with activities that can engage them holistically, using the “eyes, hands, heart and head” approach.
Within our centre, we plan our learning facilities to be embedded with social enterprise functions. Our students not only study in a classroom set up most of us are familiar with.
