By: The Educator
"Australia's schools are on an exciting journey of transformation. Whether they're taking an imaginative approach to pandemic-enforced restrictions or continuing along a long-term path of change, The Educator's 5-Star Innovative Schools prove that innovation isn't solely about improving immediate academic outcomes," says The Educator team. "It's also aimed at equipping their students with the ability to thrive in the modern world; setting them on a path of lifelong learning; nurturing tomorrow's leaders; and developing caring, responsible citizens with the critical thinking skills needed to solve real-world problems."
"Entries were open to all schools in Australia that could demonstrate innovation and creativity that is driving the education industry forward. From teaching approaches to learning spaces and curriculum design, the Innovative Schools report showcases the institutions that are shaping the educational landscape of the future. The Educator's seventh annual Innovative Schools list reveals these schools making the most profound and exciting impact in K-12 education."
Mosman High School (Mosman, NSW) has pursued its innovative approach to leadership and pedagogy over the past year. The school has successfully applied the Year 9 higher-order thinking cross-curricular elective and won a sustainability grant that students will use to design and build vertical gardens at the school. Mosman will now expand the number of cross-curricula units being offered in Years 7–10. These units include an exciting Year 7 unit focusing on indigenous culture and awareness in collaboration with Australia's Museum of Contemporary Art.
At Mosman High School, progression in many curriculum areas is based on student ability and engagement rather than age. The school also empowers its students to take responsibility for their learning through the use of technology. According to Susan Wyatt, principal at Mosman, the TE 5-Star Innovative School award affirms that the school's emphasis on literacy, numeracy, ICT, critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, and ethical and intercultural understanding represent an innovative approach with a 21st century focus.
