Mosman High School (Mosman, NSW) has pursued its innovative approach to leadership and pedagogy over the past year.
Mosman has successfully applied the Year 9 higher-order thinking cross-curricular elective and won a sustainability grant that will be used by students to design and build vertical gardens in the school. The school will now expand the number of cross-curricula units being offered in Years 7–10. These units includes an exciting Year 7 unit focusing on indigenous culture and awareness in collaboration with Australia’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
At Mosman, progression in many curriculum areas is based on student ability and engagement rather than age. Mosman also empowers its students to take responsibility for their learning through the use of technology. Learning platforms, such as Google Classroom and Education Perfect, allow students to work at their own pace within and beyond the classroom.
Mosman also plans to undertake a major building program to provide students with flexible learning spaces as well as a huge library and performance theatre.
According to Susan Wyatt, principal at Mosman, the TE 5-Star Innovative School award affirms that the school’s emphasis on literacy, numeracy, ICT, critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical and intercultural understanding represent an innovative approach with a 21st-century focus.
