What is SPARK?
SPARK is an elective-based hands-on curriculum for Years 5 & 6 students that is unique to Canterbury.
Each semester our students choose a subject to study. Then students from both year levels are combined in the same classroom and taught by highly specialised staff.
These subjects include: Business | Film, TV & New Media | Food & Hospitality | History | Literature | Photography | Science | Sport & Fitness | Visual Arts.
SPARK is about building curiosity, encouraging students to try something different and providing an exceptional opportunity to embark on their own learning journey as part of their ‘World Ready’ Canterbury education.
When does SPARK occur?
SPARK happens once per week with students encouraged to continue their learning beyond the classroom.
How does SPARK link to the curriculum?
SPARK focuses on the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities looking at critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding and intercultural understanding.
How can I see my child’s learning?
The Junior School will hold a learning exhibition at the end of each semester, where all students will have something to exhibit based on their SPARK sessions.
This is that EXPO – our very first one at the college…
