The Four Pillars of Education for the 21st Century

UNESCO International Commission on Education for the Twenty-first Century advocated the strengthening of four main pillars of learning with themes of study. 

We have further linked these to the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools themes:


Learning to Know: World concerns and the role of the United Nations system

Growing in Knowledge: Learning about faith here and in the world
Learning to Do: Education for sustainable development

Rooted in Faith: Stewardship of the Earth
Learning to Be: Peace and human rights

Reaching Out: Social justice
Learning to Live Together: Intercultural learning

To Transform the World: Social justice action/Service
