21st Century Competencies

At Crescent, we recognise the critical need to develop 21st Century skills and proficiencies in our students to help them succeed in a diverse, global, complex and media-saturated society. Our interdisciplinary, integrated and project-based curriculum 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 cultivates the following 21st Century Competencies in our students, as well as recognise exemplary conduct and active contribution:

      • Self-regulation
      • Leadership
      • Social Skills

It is hoped that most Crescentians will 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 over the year.
