Balwin School is a learning community which is committed to the success of each student. Our dedicated teachers and other staff work closely with our students in bringing a quality educational experience to every student in order to meet the needs of our diverse student population. We strive to be a centre for excellence around language and literacy learning, which challenges students to cultivate their academic potential while demonstrating distinction in citizenship, leadership, problem-solving, respect and responsibility. Most importantly, we set these high standards and expectations within a caring environment for all of our students.
Balwin School uses a Student Driven approach to learning. This helps students to become engaged in learning that is meaningful to them. They will discover their own interests, employ individual learning styles and find their own motivation as they acquire skills that will be valuable throughout their lives. Our teachers help students set goals; encourage students to assess themselves against a standard of excellence; help them to work co-operatively in groups; ensure that they know how to solve problems and contribute to the community in a meaningful manner. Our students are acquiring knowledge and developing the skills and attitudes necessary to become capable, of making a difference in our global society.
