GLORIOUS LEARNING JOURNEY

We look forward to creating new adventures and fond memories with you and your child. We are very excited for your child’s learning journey, which will be filled with endless inquiry, exploration, investigation and discovery.

“To make a school which is lovable (industrious, inventive, livable, documentable and communicable; a place of research, learning, reflection and recognition) where children, teachers and families are happy – this is our purpose. To give it organisation, contents, functions, procedures, motivations and interests, this is the strategy which aims to bring together the centralities, intensify relations between the protagonists.”

– Loris Malaguzzi

“Going beyond immediate into the realm of the possible” – Jerome Bruner

Aurora International School Of The Arts’ educational philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach. The school fosters life-long learning for children aged 12 months to 15 years, supporting self-discovery, imagination and creativity.

We believe that children have the capacity for representing ideas and constructing knowledge in a variety of symbolic and graphic modes. We emphasise the importance of children’s symbolic language, conceptualised as the “100 languages”, where ideas and knowledge-building are expressed through many creative processes, such as speech, writing, drawing, painting, sculpture, construction, music, movement and shadow play.

‘Children are active protagonists of their growth and development processes as our core value at Aurora Ecosystem.’

Aurora Ecosystem

Children are active protagonists of their growth and development processes as our core value at Aurora Ecosystem.

“We are and we need to be convinced of this – in an ecosystem: Our journey on earth is a journey that we take together with the environment, with nature, with the cosmos; Our organism, our morality, our culture, our feelings are connected to the environment, to the universe, to the world. And therein lies the web of our life.”  

– Loris Malaguzzi

Nursery & Preschool Nursery & Preschool

Nursery & Preschool

Children in our Nursery and Preschool develop number sense and literacy skills through everyday projects and provocation in their daily exploration.

Play sets the foundation for the development of critical social and emotional knowledge and skills. Through play, children learn to forge connections with others and to share, negotiate and resolve conflicts, as well as learn self-advocacy skills. Play also teaches children leadership as well as group skills. Furthermore, play is a natural tool that children can use to build their resilience and coping skills, as they learn to navigate relationships and deal with social challenges as well as conquer their fears.

“We think of a school for young children as an integral living organism, as a place of shared lives and relationships among many adults and very many children. We think of school as a sort of construction in motion, continuously adjusting itself.”

– Loris Malaguzzi

Primary Primary

Primary

Our educational philosophy is inspired by the Reggio Emilia experience within a Vietnamese cultural context. Responsibility, community involvement, respect, and sustainability are at the core of what drives our school. Under-pinning our educational philosophy is the image of the child: a competent child, full of knowledge, potential, and curiosity, active in constructing his or her own knowledge through interactions with others and the environment around them. By adopting the New Zealand curriculum, we are able to integrate a Reggio Emillia-inspired philosophy, with an Inquiry-Based approach to teaching and learning practices.

Middle School

Facilities and New Senior Primary to Middle School Villa 

Senior Primary and Middle School learners learn, explore, and play in our new Primary and Middle School Villa. This villa includes, as well as our beautiful classrooms, a science lab, art atelier, language labs, and more, where learners can learn about multiple subject areas with a range of specialists who we refer to at Aurora as our collaborative teachers. We are extremely fortunate in the design of this villa which offers a range of outdoor spaces for learners to play, read, plant, conduct research, and explore. 

Our vision for learning in Senior Primary and Middle School 

As in Preschool and Primary, we maintain our focus upon the child at the centre of all we do and our vision of them as capable individuals with ownership and agency over their learning. Our vision of an Aurora Learner is equally applicable for the Middle School children. However, there are some differences to teaching and learning for these grade levels. he learners are increasingly independent and eager to research and complete projects alone and in groups. We allow greater flexibility for them to do this so that they can plan events such as the Aurora Olympics, end of year disco, etc. on a broader scale and engage in more learning outside the classroom in the community to gain more authentic understanding of sustainability and social issues in the local area.
