Realms of Thinking help students to become innovative thinkers. They are approaches to learning which help students master the basics while also growing their capacity to ask better questions, navigate challenges, develop empathy and spark their imaginations.

The Realms of Thinking model encourages your child to imagine and aspire to any possible future, from starting and shaping a business before they graduate; applying design thinking to real-world problems; and collaborating through global connections of learning and friendship.

Our students learn to think in a different way so they're best prepared to flourish in a rapidly changing world.

Realms of Thinking in Action

Case Study


St Paul's Year 3 students partnered with Brisbane Airport Corporation to design the airport of tomorrow. Over two days, our budding engineers, designers and creators used design thinking to dream up possibilities the experts never would've considered.


Case Study


An entirely new educational framework called Immersion Studies Time (IST) has been created and is unique to St Paul’s School. IST helps students build connections and develop transferrable skills across multiple subjects. Students are asked to tackle a significant issue through which they grow 21st Century mindsets and dispositions, explore possibilities, and collaborate in meaningful ways.
