Here at St Andrew’s School, we understand that the acquiring of information and/or knowledge does not hold the key to success, because that is easily available from the Internet. We understand that preparing our children successfully for an unknown future requires that we teach them how to select information that is relevant and how to use that knowledge to solve real-life problems. We teach them the importance of collaboration and combining the unique creative potential of individuals into a collective solution. In doing so, we acknowledge the fact that we cannot prepare the future for them but we can prepare them for the future.
