Management Committee


Sharing with our students the love of the Earth, the importance of it and of resources which sustain our lives – by reading rocks, we understand how our Earth evolved and use the evidence to protect us into the future.  


In #therealclassroom students tune into the Earth, their curiosity is ignited and lifelong learning begins.  Awaken the scientist in kids, move them onto deeper thinking and learning in contextually-set, authentic, relevant and meaningful environments and they will apply this knowledge and skills turning situations into solutions:  Hands-on Science, Hands-on Engineering – this is real STEM Learning.

From the first moment I met Suzy Urbaniak I felt confident her different and daring teaching methods would change my children’s education - being a student of CoRE has taught them to collaborate, take opportunities and risks and work hard towards a bright future.

"First conversations, at an early age on STEAM careers other than ‘the norm’ is critical in keeping our future workforce at forefront of changing times and adaptability.
