The Adolescent Years (12 to 15 years)
During these years as children slowly leave behind their days of childhood and mature towards adulthood the need for self-reliance, establishing an identity of ‘oneself’ and the ‘sense of belonging to a group’ become quite significant. The transition of the child from being a member of a family to a member of the society, development of character and ability of ‘self-regulation’ are important achievement of this age.
The learning environment at Pebble Creek supports the adolescent years in the following ways:
- Providing scope for self-reliance through authentic leadership opportunities.
- Scope for understanding diversity and its potential
- Conflict resolution
- Critical thinking
- Questioning the existing systems and power structures
