About the School
Intentions of the Phi School
The Phi School of expanded education aims to offer an alternative and holistic way of learning. One that integrates seamlessly with the students, unbound by curriculum and rules about correct ages for gaining knowledge. To delve as deep into a topic as the students are willing to go. To include each student as an individual with a unique way of learning and a creative understanding that is all their own. To use subject matter as a portal through which the student can view the world with new perspectives, bringing alternative dimensions to everything that they experience.
Classes in the Phi School are limited to nine students.
In this space, the unique requirements of each student can be assessed. The limited class sizes allow the learning journey to be shaped in such a way that the differing needs of each student can be met. It also allows me to keep track of the individual progress of each child, making sure that no-one is left behind, and that each student is challenged at the boundaries of their personal capabilities.
Classes in Olinda
Classes in Olinda are taught in the comfort of my own home which is very warm, cosy and welcoming. The beautiful surroundings make for a very serene and relaxing environment in which to learn.
Classes are taught around the kitchen table, or sitting on the couches in the living room, aided by a projector.
Each student is made to feel right at home.
Classes in Collingwood
Classes are taught around a beautiful leather table amid an abundance of natural light. Students get to feel important and valued sitting around a board table, while also being able to enjoy the space to execute science experiments.
The location, at second story studios, is a creative and conscious community hub in the centre of Collingwood, ideally situated on the corner of Johnson and Hoddle street. It is very convenient to access by public transport and is situated right at exit of the Eastern Freeway.
