I.C.E stands for Inquiry, Creativity and Experimenting. We decided on this name, as these are vital 21st Century skills for the boys to be exposed to and inquiry forms a big part of the curriculum. Incorporating the I.C.E programme at St Peter’s allows boys to be exposed to new experiences and possible hobbies that they might never have considered.

On Wednesday morning, parents were invited to an open morning to see Thinking Skills in action. St Peter’s Prep Schools are one of the only schools who are “Thinking Skills Accredited” and we are known as a Thinking School. We wanted to share how the Thinking Tools are used throughout the grades in every subject. In the Information Age that we live in, critical thinking is a must-have skill for all of us to live happy, meaningful and successful lives.

Parents could wander around to the various grades for the morning and listen in, witness and actually use some of the tools.
