FRED­ER­ICK Ir­win Angli­can School Meadow Springs and Halls Head cam­puses fol­low the Walker Learn­ing Ped­a­gogy from kinder­garten to Year 6.

The Walker Learn­ing Ap­proach is an Australian-de­signed, de­vel­op­men­tally ap­pro­pri­ate ped­a­gogy that em­braces the con­cept of the “whole child”.

The kinder­garten to Year 2 ped­a­gogy en­com­passes in­ten­tional teach­ing through play, while the Year 3 to Year 6 ped­a­gogy, En­gage­ment Mat­ters, is a per­son­alised learn­ing model that con­tin­ues to de­velop and fos­ter the key prin­ci­ples of the Walker Learn­ing Ap­proach.

Both en­com­pass de­vel­op­men­tally ap­pro­pri­ate prac­tices to con­tinue to en­gage stu­dents in their learn­ing and to de­velop the skills nec­es­sary for 21st cen­tury learn­ing.

In ad­di­tion to the unique el­e­ments of Walker Learn­ing, the ex­plicit teach­ing of lit­er­acy, nu­mer­acy and all other cur­ricu­lum ar­eas and re­quire­ments of the WA Cur­ricu­lum are cov­ered.

Also cel­e­brated as a ‘light­house’ school for the Walker Learn­ing ped­a­gogy, the Meadow Springs cam­pus hosts study tours over the year for in­ter­ested ed­u­ca­tion per­son­nel across WA.
