Every child has a different style learning and pace. Each child is unique, not only capable of learning but also capable of succeeding.
- Robert John Meehan
Current research indicates that the only limit to one's intelligence is what the individual believes is possible and how his or her behaviour either fosters or limits his or her intelligence. Research also indicates that intelligence is not a static structure that can be measured and meaningfully quantified, but an open, dynamic system that can continue to develop throughout life.
Drawing a picture, composing, or listening to music, watching a performance -- these activities can be a vital door to learning -- as important as writing and mathematics. At St. Patrick’s we believe that each child is unique and he or she has some special talent, gift or intelligence. Following Gardener’s theory of multiple intelligence we weave activities and events in our academic year in such a way that children not only get opportunities to discover their special talents, but also enhance the skills they possess.
