The attendees learned a great deal and were inspired to implement critical, creative, caring and most importantly, collaborative thinking in the classroom.

The workshop afforded the Holy Rosary staff the opportunity to engage with Buckley and fellow colleagues as well as teachers from visiting schools.

This event was arranged by Diane Horsten and Monica Baart, the philosophy for children co-ordinators at Holy Rosary School in conjunction with Kemble Elliott, the director of creative and critical thinking at Redhill School.

The workshop, run at both schools, gave teachers the opportunity to participate in ‘hands-on’ activities and skills which will be used in the classroom, alongside Thinking Maps.

Holy Rosary is committed to new thinking strategies and creating a better classroom environment to equip students to become more driven to learn and to question matters.
