INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS FEATURE V1 - NTNE01Z01DS SUN NEWSPAPERS, Tuesday, May 24, 2016 27 AT Kormilda College they open minds and open hearts. Students challenge, engage and are inspired and the international curriculum is the inspiration for the future of each child. Maxine, a graduate of Kormilda College, described an experience where I was allowed to pursue a wider range of interests and I was encouraged to be more critical in my thinking. A school is a nurturing place for the growth of the mind and the development of a future leader and citizen of the world. A school offers challenge in the curriculum and encourages the inquiring mind to explore. A school is a place of respect, justice compassion and lifelong learning and where there is a place for everyone. Kormilda College is a school where these values and ideals all meet, where students from the Early Learning Centre to Year 10 learn within the framework of the International Baccalaureate on one campus. In Years 11 and 12 students benefit from teachers dedicated to excellence, and have a choice of curriculums, the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) or the Northern Territory Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET), depending on their needs, interests and abilities. IBDP students learn to be critical thinkers, engage with the community through service, understand the Theory of Knowledge, and can embrace university with confidence. The Senior Years at Kormilda College offer the best of all worlds as they believe that everyone who leaves the College is equipped to make a difference through what they have learned and the integrity of their learning.
