What is SPARK?

SPARK is an elective-based ‘hands-on’ curriculum for Years 5 and 6 students unique to Canterbury.

Each semester, our students choose a particular subject to study.

Then, students from both year levels are combined into the same classroom and taught by relevant staff.

SPARK is about building curiosity, encouraging students to try something new, and providing an exceptional opportunity to embark on their learning journey as part of their ‘World Ready’ Canterbury education.

When does SPARK occur?

SPARK happens once weekly, with students encouraged to continue learning beyond the classroom.

How does SPARK link to the curriculum?

SPARK focuses on the Australian Curriculum’s general capabilities, critical and creative thinking, personal and social capability, ethical understanding and intercultural understanding.

How can I see my child’s learning?

The Junior School hosts a learning exhibition at the end of each semester, where all students will have something to exhibit based on their SPARK sessions.
