Leadership in Learning

Since 2004, Hillfield Strathallan College has strategically engaged in our Transformation HSC project involving both educational shifts and facilities enhancements. Student-centred learning is at the heart of who we are, what we do and how we do things. Based on extensive research and through on-going professional development, we continue to examine teaching and learning practices that affect choice, applications, problem solving and metacognition as key components of student-centred learning.
