In response to the natural beauty of the site, the school integrates environmental and aboriginal education.
Children are encouraged to express themselves formally and informally through a variety of speaking, listening and writing activities such as keeping journals, writing letters or emails, recounting excursion experiences, and sharing life stories.
Major excursion venues include Sydney Olympic Park, Taronga Zoo, the Rocks Area, the Powerhouse, Maritime and Australian Museums. In addition, parks, reserves, lighthouses are visited along the Northern Beaches.
Children participate in Visual and creative arts such as pottery, dance, painting and drawing.
Through use of technology children contribute to the production of a DVD visual diary of their stay at Stewart House. They utilise email to communicate to home and home schools and to access the Internet for research. They can record their experiences or excursion research in our computer lab.
There is an active sports program including bike riding, swimming and outdoor games. Through a special grant the Australian Sports Commission provides a variable program every term that has included beach games, gymnastics, hip-hop dance and basic games skills. Beach activities such as surf awareness, kite flying, sand modelling and games complement the more formal sports program.
As part of their stay children are encouraged to further develop their independence and sense of responsibility through activities such as cooking, health awareness and self help skills.
Children are encouraged to enjoy recreational and leisure pursuits. Some activities provided are bush walking, fishing riding scooters and indoor games.
Children learn to socialise with others and relax while completing craft activities such as stained glass windows, jewellery making and wood burning.
Steeped in history, Stewart House School is one of the popular school in the Curl Curl area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
