Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - LOCAL FOCUS -

IM­PLE­MENT­ING the most re­cent pro­gres­sive in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tional ideas, Perth Montes­sori strives to­wards stu­dents re­ceiv­ing the best pos­si­ble ed­u­ca­tion and be­com­ing contributing mem­bers of a global so­cial com­mu­nity.

Perth Montes­sori be­lieves Kindy should be far more than fin­ger paint­ing and play­dough. In­stead, stu­dents at the school are work­ing to learn to read and write.

From Pre-Kindy to Year 12, teach­ers work to de­velop a strong foun­da­tion in so­cial/emo­tional ma­tu­rity, lan­guage and maths in­te­grated with sub­jects such as mu­sic, phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion, cul­ture, ge­og­ra­phy, zo­ol­ogy, botany, phys­i­cal science, his­tory, art and drama.

Stu­dents also learn prac­ti­cal skills for ev­ery­day life in­clud­ing cook­ing, car­pen­try, tech­nol­ogy and de­sign and ro­bot­ics.

This pro­gres­sive cur­ricu­lum works to­ward stu­dents be­com­ing in­de­pen­dent self­di­rected crit­i­cal thinkers, aim­ing to cre­ate a joy of learn­ing that will last with them through­out their lives.
