  2. A quality learning environment exists where assessments are used to inform teaching and learning, and effective and timely feedback is given.
  3. Engaging and challenging opportunities are given to enhance the capacity for students to learn and make connections to the real world.
  4. Effective learning takes place through differentiated learning and enrichment opportunities which cater for individual needs.
  5. The environment is stimulating and the educational resources used are attractive and appealing, to provide opportunities for inquiry based learning.
  6. Students see themselves as learners who build upon prior learning and experience in order to develop knowledge, skills, values and attitudes which promote intellectual quality.
