Cultural capital refers to the essential knowledge, behaviours, and skills that children need to succeed in their education, society, and future careers. It encompasses a wide range of elements, including language proficiency, cultural awareness, social etiquette, and familiarity with diverse traditions and practices.
At Springwood Junior Academy, we understand the importance of nurturing and developing students' cultural capital. We believe that providing rich and sustained opportunities for students to broaden their cultural experiences is vital to their academic and personal success.
Through our curriculum, extra-curricular activities, workshops, field trips, enrichment days, and community engagement, we strive to expose our students to diverse cultures, perspectives, and experiences. By doing so, we aim to equip them with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to thrive in an increasingly interconnected and multicultural world.
We recognise that every student has unique starting points, and our focus is on supporting each student's individual growth and development. By fostering a culturally inclusive and engaging learning environment, we aim to empower our students to set and achieve their goals, regardless of their background or initial circumstances.
At Springwood Junior Academy, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible start to their education, ensuring they possess the cultural capital they need to succeed academically and beyond.
