Larrakeyah Primary School Our school our future



Developing 21st Century Learning skills is pivotal in providing primary school students with successful pathways to middle school and future subject selection.

QUEST is an innovative approach to teaching. The program enables students to explore different areas of interest through projects in real-world contexts. The projects are designed around an inquiry-based learning framework that promotes the development of 21st Century Skills while incorporating disciplines across the STEAM subjects.

Preparing for the future

QUEST recognises that the careers of tomorrow might not exist today. The ability to apply skills, problem solving, critical thinking and take responsibility for the success of their team as well as their individual role will be key drivers that help our students thrive and shape society.

QUEST gives students the opportunity to sample different industries and develop passions.

How QUEST works

Each year, students in Year 5 and 6 participate in a vast range of projects each focused on a particular area of interest. Working with a Project Leader and an industry/community member students followed a learning sequence, incorporating the 4Cs, to explore a specific inquiry question within the chosen field.
