Ambarvale High School

Improving our School (IoS.1)

Improving our School utilises an interdisciplinary model and design thinking pedagogy. Through this project all Year 8 students engaged in an evaluation of an aspect of the physical or learning environment at Ambarvale HS.
The aim is to improve one or more aspects of the learning, physical or social environment of the school. In the second semester the model is replicated in a different setting with an external client, for example a local primary school, where students meet with stakeholders in that community to identify another need for their STEM project. Students focus on developing their critical and creative thinking, as well as problem solving in line with 21st century thinking.
