The Approach

Education today must prepare students for a future in a rapidly changing world.

Why is a change in education essential?

The current model of education was designed for an Industrial Age, where the goal was to produce large numbers of workers with the same basic skills, knowledge, and attitudes. This model relies on structure, standardisation, and compliance:

Students sit at desks, facing the front while the teacher explains, instructs, and sets assignments.

Student progress is year by year, based on age not ability, and with little opportunity to engage individual interests.

The school day is divided into blocks in a repetitive weekly schedule that focuses on working efficiently and conforming to set standards.

The world has changed

Education today must prepare students for a future in a rapidly changing world and the current system is falling short. It is our belief that an educational approach that is flexible, adaptable, and focussed on developing the Knowledge, Capabilities & Self-development of the individual is critical to our students’ success in the modern world.

Knowledge

is developed through the core curriculum of English, Maths, Science, Religious Education, HSIE, PE, Creative Arts & Technology.

Capabilities

are developed through the integration of complex competencies, including Critical Thinking, Learner Agency, and Collaboration.

Self-development

Students develop a greater sense of who they are and what’s important to them through interest electives, passion projects, finding their SIM (Strengths, Interests & Motivations) and Wellbeing.

What is future facing?

Future Facing aligns with our commitment to nurturing agile empowered, and engaged students. 2024 will see a redesign of the traditional timetable that draws on research around ‘Best Use of Time’ in education. The new school schedule is designed to enhance the core curriculum by offering more choice, flexibility and independence around learning, as well as more opportunities for students to engage in interests and develop a strong sense of who they are.

The timetable will move beyond current educational constructs, creating a dynamic environment that supports Face to Face Learning, Best Use of Time, Flipped Learning and Wellbeing. We foster an environment where students can acquire the core skills, capabilities, and self-awareness to prepare for a successful real-world future.

Future Facing x Chev

Future Facing will change the way Chevalier students learn, creating a contemporary educational experience with Knowledge, Capabilities & Self-development at its core. By using time more effectively to maximise engagement and personal growth, students connect more deeply with their learning, acquiring complex capabilities and greater self-awareness to help them flourish in a rapidly changing world. Underpinning everything we do are our MSC values. We are MSC people, we are led by our hearts, and by our relationships with each other, and the world around us. Future Facing will better prepare our students for that world.
