Thinking Week: Is a series of five, one-day workshops that, if taken together, provide an introduction to both the concept of the ‘Thinking School,’ and the essential elements within it. Each of the workshops also stands alone. A ‘Thinking School’ is one within which the further development of a student’s capacities as an independent, self-managing and reflective learner drive both teaching and pedagogy. Parents and teachers are invited to attend. Teresa Williams an International Thinking Schools Facilitator will be our guest speaker. For more information please email Nicole Liebenberg (nicolel@graystonprep.co.za) or Nicola Scriven ( nicolas@graystonprep.co.za).
