The importance of collaboration

As one of our ‘Four C’s, collaboration at St. Michael’s International School is identified as an essential skill. At its most basic, collaboration encourages teamwork and social interaction. Collaborative learning also allows our young learners to develop some valuable skills such as problem-solving, communication, creativity, confidence, builds relationships and increases engagement as well as allows learners to have more fun. This week’s Good Neighbour Event was a perfect example of how well planned collaborative activities enhance learning. Lots of fun and we raised an impressive amount of money for local and international charities too!
