What are they?
Halcyon’s mission is to draw out the unique potential of each child. Every child’s interests and abilities are unique, and to understand these – to find out what inspires each of us and to explore different ways of learning – Halcyon offers an Exploration Programme in grades 6 – 9. This gives every child the opportunity to discover different areas of learning, built around six domains: Creativity, Action, Service, Wellbeing & Citizenship, STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and Our World.
Explorations allow us to learn together: to create and deliver a project, to master a particular skill, or to uncover new ideas and ways of thinking. We intend that Explorations will provide an opportunity for personal growth. We intend that students will have the opportunity to pursue their passions, and to build their skills. We intend that students will use the experience of different explorations to support, and enhance, their personal learning. And we intend that students will take risks and try new things: there are six different domains to explore.
