As a school community we have a vision of "Creating Tomorrow Together", and doing it in a very practical way. It's an approach that emanates from our key convictions, the cornerstones that underpin what we teach, even how and why we go about it.
These cornerstones are creativity, partnerships and environment.
In order to "Create Tomorrow Together", the Coorparoo Secondary College way of teaching and learning incorporates:
Developing creativity through
Developing partnerships with
- BSDE & our blended learning initiatives
- GU & STEM ambassadors program
- Industry, Community, Clubs, Parents, Support team
- Universities, TAFE, Primary Schools, EEC's to develop Professional Learning Communities
Appreciating our environment
- Local to Global perspective
- Sustainable practice
Employers tell us our students need to be creative thinkers so that they learn to "think outside the square" to find creative solutions to the problems they will face as they pursue future careers in the information age. They also need to develop flexibility to adapt to changing work roles and combine work with lifelong learning. Creativity also helps each learner to lead a well-balanced life.
Partnerships with other educational providers increase our students' opportunity to access advanced or specialised programs offered by universities, TAFE's etc., so that they combine these with school subjects as part of their course of study. Partnerships with industry and the community open doors for our students into work experience, mentoring, future jobs, school-based apprenticeships and traineeships and support networks.
Without sustaining our environment, there will be no tomorrow. Our students act locally to protect our environment globally for tomorrow and learners today are tomorrow's responsible global citizens.
