    This is a good statement about the Arts and the key competencies, that arises from an authentic school setting. It is heartening to hear how much the Arts are valued in this school, both in their own right, and also for other learning.

    My only concern is the statement about "developing a sense of literacy" through music, which may be interpreted as developing the skills of reading music notation, rather than a more generic interpretation of "literacy" as "interpreting and making meaning" through the arts.


    Wish I was young enough to have children involved in what sounds like a pretty amazing program. Great presentation, Turanita. You articulated what the eportfolio is all about so well. Proud of you. All the very best to all those who are involved.


    Thank you for sharing about the inquiry concept. You've explained it really well. I remember several years ago working in the education sector with an experienced work colleague who facilitated her class brilliantly in this manner. We both worked in a second chance learning institute for teenage kids who were no longer in college for reasons such as learning difficulties, at risk with the law, or gangs etc. The Inquiry concept taught me a lot about how powerful it is and how it can move individuals into taking ownership of their own learning in their world. I am considering going back into teaching.
