Curriculum - Habits of Mind

 At St Paul's Arthur L. Costa's Habits of Mind provide a framework for thinking and talking about the dispositions and skills necessary to be an effective learner and an active participant at school and in the community.

Focus on the 16 Habits of Mind in all classes supports the development of students' General Capabilities. The intent is to encourage reflection, promote strategic reasoning, perseverance and creativity.

In each year level students develop understandings of the 16 Habits of Mind and are supported to apply them in everyday contexts. The aim is to equip our students to repond to real-life challenges by intentionally employing strategies that require mindfulness, awareness of self and others and focus on productive outcomes.
