    WOW!!!! What a powerful place that exemplifies science and technology possibility for students. I absolutely loved visiting the school. I am keen to collaborate in the future and work with the school around engaging more girls into STEM. Here is my report: THANK YOU!!!


  4. Michael Smith says:

    Some really wonderful and innovative spaces that are so simple yet so complex. It is genuinely reflective of making the best use possible of the space in the classrooms.


  5. Chantel Mirzai says:

    Thank you so much for this inspirational visit. I have so many take-aways as a primary school educator from Sydney, Australia. It was wonderful to see the way in which your approach to applied learning is particularly connected to the community, and that every project has a purpose. I also appreciated the opportunity to observe high-levels of engagement during classroom observations. Congratulations on developing such an inspiring and innovative school learning community.


  6. Sasha Mildenhall says:

    So thankful for the time we have had today and the opportunity to grow our ideas and share SSTs learning journey. I leave with many ideas to further develop our schools next steps in cross curricular project based deep learning and our work from the new pedagogues for develop learning project. Thank you


  7. Monica St Baker says:

    What an amazing experience! Thank you so much for your time and allowing us to experience SST. Your students are incredibly lucky to have a purpose built school that caters to their science and technology interests.


  8. 王芳 says:

    I have been very impressed that while the school has a science and technology focus it is not overpowering in the way it is presented. That is to say it is refreshing to see that young people need to learn the basics before going onto more complex ideas and that they learn the complete process rather than developing without undertaking the design elements. It is also wonderful to see that the young people give back to the school both while attending and through coming back as contractors.
    Thank you for your time and efforts in sharing.


  9. Jessica says:
