Innovative Teaching and Enhanced Learning Spaces at Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah
2018 heralds in an era of expanded offerings and revitalised learning facilities for students at Yeshivah and Beth Rivkah Colleges and Pre-Schools. From new building and learning spaces, to innovative teaching methods, YBR students have an exciting school year ahead.
Beth Rivkah Primary students are eagerly awaiting the opening of the newly constructed wing in early 2018. This building, catering to the expanding needs of the growing school community, will house an information hub library and Maker Space, a creativity and STEM centre, and a variety of state-of-the-art classrooms and breakaway spaces.
Following the overwhelming success and positive experiences of students in its first year, the Albert Dadon Family Culinary Arts Centre, which opened in early 2017, will expand its offerings to five year levels across the boys and girls campuses. The Centre affords Yeshivah and Beth Rivkah students the opportunity to undertake hospitality and culinary courses as Certificates and VET options for VCE. In 2018 even more students will benefit from the state-of-the-art facilities and unique program, delivered in a creative and engaging manner.
Across the Beth Rivkah and Yeshivah campuses, students are presented with subject matter to empower and engage them. Developing coding and thinking skills, problem solving and other essential skills for the future are a key element of classroom learning. The innovative teaching program at Yeshivah – Beth Rivkah harnesses students’ imaginations and coding camps further enhance these skills, equipping them for the future.
The YBR Crèche offering has continued to grow and expand, with a hybrid Crèche-Kinder room being introduced into the kinder facility to cater to the increased demand. The popularity of the YBR Pre-Schools is unparalleled, as 2018 sees the largest cohort of 4 year old boys in the history of the school!
