Learner Attributes

The TSIS Learner Attributes are unique to our school. Based on compelling research, we have identified 8 attitudes towards learning that we believe are essential for academic and personal success.

 

We strive for all students to see themselves as in control of their own learning and to understand that learning opportunities exist all around them, not just from the teacher. Our Learner Attributes are visible all over the school. They are referred to by all teacher’s during lessons and are explored in greater depth during assemblies. Our ultimately goal is to create lifelong learners.
