The highly experienced teachers/Masters’ students, who are Heads of Department in their respective teaching areas within their own schools, were impressed by the teaching and learning undertaken at Bialik College.

A spokesperson for Bialik told J-Wire: “They toured the school and inquired about the College’s approach to pedagogy and curriculum, showing particular interest in the Reggio Emilia and Cultures of Thinking approaches as well as the College’s focus on student-centred learning. They particularly enjoyed the opportunity to observe classes in the Primary and Middle schools and commented on the obvious rapport that exists between teachers and students, stating they could observe the mutual respect that lies at the heart of these relationships at Bialik College.”

The College’s Cultures of Thinking philosophy, renowned through the education world, is the outcome of Bialik’s collaboration with the University of Harvard’s Project Zero and is the first of its kind in Australia.
