Through the Inquiry approach, opportunities are provided for students to pose questions about their world. Within a Contemporary learning framework, there is an emphasis on group interaction, questioning, reflective thinking and taking action. Student voice is also encouraged to enable richer learning experiences to occur. The use of current technologies also enables students to make connections with others across the globe. The areas of Indigenous Perspectives, Asian Studies and Sustainability are integrated within Inquiry learning topics.

At St. Martin of Tours our Inquiry approach is based on the following concepts;

  • Society
  • Human Enterprise
  • Cultural Diversity
  • Change over time
  • Energy/Change/Reaction
  • Sustainability
  • Environment.
