Wooranna Park Primary School emphasises students accepting responsibility for their learning, along with learning through collaboration with their peers. Opportunities are provided for students to pursue personal learning passions and negotiate the curriculum. The school is strongly influenced by the philosophical thinking underpinning the Reggio Emilia Schools of Northern Italy and the work of Professor George Betts, on autonomous learners. The school has adopted an interdisciplinary, research based approach, to the development of curriculum, with an emphasis on deep and authentic learning experiences. All teachers work collaboratively in team teaching units.
