KXP stands for Korowa Expeditions and is a curriculum model which is built on the three dimensions of character, mastery of knowledge and skills and high quality work.
Extending across the School up to Year 10, KXP contributes to the development of good people as it engages, motivates and challenge students in project based learning to develop proficiency, apply skills and knowledge and make a positive contribution to a better world.
Each eight week learning expedition is strongly founded upon curriculum outcomes across a range of subjects and is firmly underpinned by literacy.
Students are inspired and empowered to challenge themselves as they apply critical thinking while undertaking the design thinking process to create high quality beautiful work with an authentic purpose in the form of a product or service for real world clients.
Working in small groups, students confidently develop crucial communication and collaboration skills as they deal with complex ideas and problems which will set them up well for life beyond school.
Each expedition concludes with an exhibition of some form in which the students’ beautiful work is proudly shared.
It is a powerful experience that builds life skills that students will use beyond school. KXP provides opportunities for students to work together to problem-solve, lead, negotiate, connect with experts creating real-world connections and mastery learning where they continue to improve their work, taking on feedback from teachers and peers.
Korowa has developed this program based on the EL Education principles of empowering students to “achieve more than they think possible.”
Expedition learning allows our students to work through a project-based learning model to develop proficiency, apply skills and knowledge in an authentic context.
Expeditions are built on the three dimensions of mastery of knowledge and skills, character and high-quality achievement.
Underpinning KXP is the concept of Crew, which is essential to the development of character. ’We are crew, not passengers’ with teachers and students working alongside one another to include the diversity of individuals.
