The Four Cs

Our philosophy is that to deliver a well-rounded education to our students, there must be a focus on nurturing the 21st Century skills of collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. Development of this skill-set is embraced by the Lincoln community and supported by the Lincoln mission:

Lincoln is a community where all students, staff and families come together to develop compassionate, creative and collaborative problem solvers able to thrive in an ever changing world.


A Growth Mindset

Complementing the Four Cs, the growth mindset is nurtured in Lincoln students. A growth mindset occurs in students when they are given the opportunity to try and fail, and can positively rebound from these setbacks. This learned resilience is helped along significantly by teaching practices and feedback.
