Big Ideas

All Junior and Middle Schoostudents, Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 at Holy Cross College, engage in Big Ideas, an interdisciplinary programme through which they will have the opportunity to come to a greater understanding of themselves, their community and the world in which they live.  

The real world is not divided into separate areas of study and to engage with the world requires knowledge of how all areas of study are linked. 

In Big Ideas students will be given opportunities to:

  • Focus on deep learning in meaningful, connected contexts.
  • Solve problems
  • Think critically, creatively and laterally
  • Develop a range of literacies
  • Develop independent learning skills
  • Reflect on learning
  • Grow in social and emotional competence
  • Become spiritually aware
