Spearwood Alternative School


Philosophy and Ethos

Our school serves to engage community in education. Programs are student-centred and students negotiate curriculum with teachers. The ‘living classroom’ has become an enriching and exciting part of our curriculum. We believe that students are motivated and engaged when learning provides a real-life context and promotes real-life skills.

Supporting our commitment to sustainable community, both local and global, our school has a relationship with a remote Aboriginal community school in WA (senior students visit biannually), with a Tibetan School – Gesar Sherab (through the Tibetan Support Program) and enjoys contributing to and connecting with the community of Zwa Zulu Natal through the Uthando Doll Project.
