learning how to learn

We are serious about education

Learning should meet the individual needs of each student. They are entering a rapidly changing world and the knowledge they acquire today is different from the skills they will need when they leave school– therefore learning how to learn and respectfully discuss opinions are some of the competences we seek to develop. The teacher is responsible for understanding the student’s individual learning needs and supporting them. The focus is on their learning process.
