Cultural Perspectives

Welcome to the world of the ‘cultural perspectives’

Students will choose two cultural perspectives and study one during term 1 and the other during term 2. Each course will have one or two sessions per week and last around 6 or 7 weeks.

We cannot tell you at the moment what these will be because we want teachers to put their ‘cultural’ hats on to create a course that taps into their knowledge and interests. We will share the topics with students in advance so that they choose which perspective they would like to study.

Teachers use their creativity, backgrounds and/or wider interest to design a cultural perspective course that appeals to students. There will be about 15 on offer so there will be plenty to choose from. Students must choose and stay on board their cultural experience. It is not an opt-in. 

We design these perspectives to particularly:

  • encourage creativity and wider reading
  • spark interest and generate a sense of ‘awe and wonder’ around a topic or event
  • give students genuine opportunities to talk, debate and show leadership
  • be rooted in spiritual, moral, social and cultural education.

Students also have to submit a final response to the cultural perspective session. It doesn’t necessarily follow the response has to be an essay! The response expected will reflect the cultural perspective itself, naturally blending with the topic, delivery and content of the course itself. It could be a presentation, artefact, dramatic piece – who knows?

The teacher’s judgement on the quality of the response will be included in our reports to parents and feedback to students.
