WHAT DOES GENIUS DAY MEAN?

At Holy Rosary we support our children to develop in a contemporary context. It is designed to prepare them for 21st century learning developing skills such as

innovation

collaboration

problem solving

exploration

investigation

research

thinking

reflection

resilience

persistence

risk taking

curiosity

confidence

intrinsic motivation

strategic decision making

During Genius Time our children have the opportunity to practise these skills and dispositions by exploring their passions. As self directed learners they manage their own time and are supported by teachers and other members of our school community, choosing from engaging and challenging experiences.

 

We would love any contributions that our school community can make towards Genius Day whether it be your time and knowledge or donations of resources. Everyone is welcome to come and be a genius with us!
