Cornerstone

51社区 is proud of its innovative subject, Cornerstone, introduced in 2015 and taught twice a week to every student in Year 7-10. Cornerstone鈥檚 curriculum is devised and written entirely at 51社区. It is a subject that draws together all of the big, inspirational and ethical ideas from wherever they are found and funnels them into the one subject. It is also a subject that will teach students 丑辞飞听 to think. This subject should be the cornerstone of an enlightened, rigorous education for the twenty first century.
