Multiple intelligence (MI) days

According to Howard Gardner's theory, we are all able to know the world through language, logical-mathematical analysis, spatial representation, musical thinking, the use of the body to solve problems or to make things, an understanding of other individuals, and an understanding of ourselves. Where individuals differ is in the strength of these intelligences and in the ways in which such intelligences are used and combined to carry out different tasks, solve diverse problems and progress in various subjects.

At Windsor South Public School, we dedicate one day per term to further broadening students' learning.

Each MI days is based on a theme to promote and enhance the students' understanding through activities based on the various multiple intelligences.

Students participate in a variety of activities throughout the day, working with classmates, other students and teachers other than their class teacher.

It is a great day, enjoyed by all. The community is welcome to come and join us on these days.
