Enrichment

Bribie Island State School provides An Enriched Education for ALL students.  We cater for our students by acknowledging that there are differences in learning styles, backgrounds, needs and motivation.  We treat students accordingly by modifying tasks, content and method of instruction to ensure all students can access the curriculum in a way that is meaningful for them. With the advent of ever-changing technology and therefore changes in the world of work and life – students need opportunities to develop their strengths and skills in a number of ways. A differentiated, inclusive education is the key.
As part of our ongoing commitment to providing these authentic opportunities, we dedicate four complete Enrichment Days each year – one per term, ensuring a well-balanced approach to learning and catering for individual learning styles. These days have proven to be an overwhelming success with students, staff and parents providing positive feedback.
Our framework is guided by Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Model which ensures students are placed into activities according to their strengths.
“An intelligence is the ability to solve problems, or to create products, that are valued within
one or more cultural settings.”
-- Howard Gardner
