Learning at Korowa
Korowa approaches the learning needs of all students from the Early Learning Centre through to VCE with commitment, compassion and enthusiasm. We are dedicated to encouraging all students to reach their full potential, wherever that may lie.
Our curriculum is a carefully constructed path which leads girls to academic success now and into the future. It also facilitates the development of that confident inner person who has the strength of character and resolve to succeed in endeavours throughout their lifetime.
The concept of curriculum differentiation underpins the teaching at all levels at Korowa. Here, one size does not fit all. We recognize that within each classroom there will be many different learning needs, styles and abilities. Therefore we provide multiple options and pathways for learning to occur – through the curriculum we deliver and the methods we use.
At Korowa, there is true student-centred learning in action. We make every effort to meet each student at their individual point of need. Our approach values curiosity and initiative. It encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning.
If students need additional support or extension, our Centre for Individual Enrichment staff provide individualised attention.
Classroom activities are complemented by a wide range of co-curricular programs, which we encourage all girls to pursue.
The benefits of a girls-only classroom from Prep to Year 12 are evident at Korowa. Independent research consistently demonstrates that girls simply learn better in a single gender environment. Korowa students have strong role models, an abundance of leadership opportunities and are less likely to limit themselves by conforming to gender stereotypes. When combined with our small class sizes, the capacity for girls to flourish grows.
