At Canterbury we recognise that we must embrace and promote 21st century skills, if we are to produce students and adults who can succeed in this world that is changing so rapidly.
Often 21st century skills are reduced to the 4C’s – Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Creativity. In fact the list is extensive and it is this list that we at Canterbury refer to when identifying the 21st century skills and characteristics displayed by every one of our students. From perseverance to adaptability, to multicultural awareness and humanitarianism, to entrepreneurialism.
These traits are nurtured, preparing our students to become adults who can comprehend unforeseen events and act wisely in their wake. Adults who are equipped to make the world a better place.
