21st Century Learning
At Aireys Inlet Primary School we provide rich and supportive environments to develop our students into 21st Century Learners.

These skills are developed through rich Literacy and Numeracy experiences and are at the core of our teaching and learning programs.
We use a variety of tools and strategies to provide our students with opportunities to develop these skills. These include using apps to demonstrate and prove their thinking, flexible learning spaces to promote a variety of learning experiences, and individualised teaching and learning to target the needs of all students.
