As an Apple Distinguished School we offer an innovative and compelling learning environment that engages our learners by creating meaningful learning experiences with technology. Global citizenship, creativity, collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills are key components of every aspect of learning and ensure our learner’s future-readiness. Our approach uses Project Based Learning and real-world platforms, where learners create positive outcomes, products and solutions for an ever-changing, environmentally challenged world.

We will be showcasing the following components of our learning programme:

  • How we integrate Project Based Learning, Art and Design, Robotics, Coding and 3D Printing in our Preparatory Faculty to keep our learners engaged and excited about learning.
  • Our comprehensive Robotics programme is core to learning from Grade R to Grade 8. This has promoted an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, Mathematics (STEAM) and Coding where our learners develop problem-solving skills. This offering also extends into theme-based robotics competitions that inspire creativity and invention.
  • Our Mobile Application Development Incubator where our learners make free, professional applications for the global market. A key focus here is for our learners to help society by solving current challenges with software solutions.
  • Parklands College Studios is the home of our Film and Sound Engineering facility. In this space we offer an experiential, professional platform for young creative talent to create film, animation and sound products for a global audience.

At Parklands College we believe that the best way to prepare our learners for the future is by offering an environment where they can focus on their interests and passions, learn by doing, innovate, make decisions, and work together towards solving real community challenges.
