Boys Prep  October 12, 2017 | Academics | Diane Fraser and the Grade Heads

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.
