Sylvia Park School 2016 - Growing a good idea!

Term 2 Inquiry

FOCUS STATEMENT:

Make your idea pay

FOCUS QUESTION:

How can I be a successful entrepreneur?

This term our Inquiry is all about developing the enterprising entrepreneur in our students and staff.  We are planning for our students to learn about others who have grown their good idea/s into businesses and ventures that have impacted positively on themselves and others. We are looking forward to seeing our students identify their own good ideas and build a business case that will see their good ideas grow!  

Some of the key learning outcomes we want our students to know, and act on, are:

  • Financial literacy and the value of money.
  • Models that are used to explore, test and evaluate for an innovative outcome.
  • That technology reflects what people need in a changing environment.
  • Technology can make positive and negative changes.
  • People make decisions based on needs and wants.
  • That consumers make decisions based on need, price, social acceptability, etc.
  • Prototypes need to be tested, evaluated and modified.
  • Entrepreneurship grows the economy.
  • Anyone can invent to solve a problem or fill a need.

If you or anyone in your family has some good ideas and/or experience that might be helpful to support students learning please feel free to come and share it with your child's teacher.  

 

2015 Inquiry

 It's worth the fight for equal rights. How can we act to make a dramatic impact? Students answer their inquiry by learning about people who have stood up for their own and others rights. They answer their own question by creating a production to tell their learning story. They designed the costumes, wrote the scripts, designed the sets and performed the stories!
This is what we expect of a term's worth of student inquiry at Sylvia Park School.
