Personal Goals

The personal goals refer to those individual qualities and dispositions we believe children will find essential in the 21st century.  They help to develop those qualities that will enable children to be at ease with the continually changing context of their lives. There are personal goals for enquiry, resilience, principles, communication, thoughtfulness, cooperation, respect and adaptability.

As an example of some of the IPC Learning Goals for Adaptability, children, through their study of the IPC will learn to:

  • Know about a range of views, cultures and traditions
  • Be able to consider and respect the views, cultures and traditions of other people
  • Be able to cope with unfamiliar situations
  • Be able to approach tasks with confidence
  •  Be able to suggest and explore new roles, ideas, and strategies
  • Be able to move between conventional and more fluid forms of thinking
  • Be able to be at ease with themselves in a variety of situations
