Definition of Learn & Develop

RE Learn & Develop learners develop the knowledge, skills, attitudes, awareness and understanding necessary to become successful critical learners and confident Responsible Outstanding Citizens.

Learning increases our academic, physical, emotional or social capacity. Learning takes place through a variety of activities including observation, research, experimentation, experience and reflection.
