21st Century Competencies

At Crescent, we recognise the critical need for developing 21st century skills and proficiencies in our students so as to build in them the capacity to succeed in a diverse, global, complex and media-saturated society. Our curriculum, which is interdisciplinary, integrated and project-based, is designed to provide opportunities for the development and mastery of the following 21st century competencies in our students:

  • Collaboration
  • Global Awareness
  • Knowledge Construction
  • Real World Problem-Solving and Innovation
  • Skilled Communication
  • Use of ICT for Learning

Co-curricular participation provides the platform to develop in students the following 21st century competencies and to recognise exemplary conduct and active contribution:

  • Self-regulation
  • Leadership
  • Social Skills

It is hoped that most Crescentians will be able to attain the 5-6 range in the scoring metrics for each skill before they leave the school. Students will receive assessment feedback indicating the level attained for each assessed competency in the course of the year.
