- Teachers at Hawkesbury Independent School, recognise that learning is not a spectator sport. Students do not learn much by just sitting in class listening to the teacher or memorising facts and spitting out answers.
- At Hawkesbury Independent School, teachers manipulate the environment to encourage active learning.
- They provide active hands-on activities, experiments, opportunities for discussion, writing about what they are learning, relating it to their background knowledge, and applying it to their daily lives.
