Secondary School

The Adolescent Years (12 to 15 years)

The Philosophy

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:

  1. Providing scope for self-reliance through authentic leadership opportunities.
  2. Scope for understanding diversity and its potential
  3. Conflict resolution
  4. Critical thinking
  5. Collaboration
  6. Expression
  7. Questioning the existing systems and power structures
