Grades 4 - 7
“I believe that it is far more important to teach children how to think for themselves, rather than teaching them what to think. Our world is changing so fast that much of the curriculum we traditionally taught in Primary school is irrelevant to living and working in the 21st century by the time they leave high school. Teaching children how to analyse, problem-solve and make confident decisions is vital if we are to equip them for a successful future. Children learn when they are having fun and the knowledge they construct themselves, is more meaningful and better retained. To this end, children should be encouraged to explore freely, investigate thoroughly and grapple with problems to find solutions.”
- Jane Ritchie, Head of DSG Junior
