Critical and Creative Thinking

Vistara Primary School uses Critical and Creative Thinking (CCT), an innovative program which is designed to teach students to think for themselves and be more resilient.

CCT helps prepare students with the skills, strategies and dispositions

for life-long learning.


Critical and Creative Thinking involves teaching students strategies

about knowledge, skills, behaviours and the seven dispositions

for learning.
