Junior School Academic Program (P-6)

The Redeemer Lutheran College Junior School is committed to providing a supportive and stimulating learning environment that allows each student to reach their potential. Students from Prep to Year 6 engage in learning that promotes investigation, questioning, higher order thinking and problem-solving. 

The Junior School curriculum allows students to explore and build their knowledge and skills in the following Learning Areas: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Technology, Health and Physical Education, Arts, Christian Studies and Languages other than English (LOTE - Mandarin and Japanese).

Early Years: Prep-Year 2

Redeemer's Early Years program serves to provide our younger students with opportunities to learn and grow in a safe, caring and nurturing environment. Students are taught and guided in their learning by specialist Early Childhood trained teachers.

All of our Prep classes benefit from the work of full-time Teacher Assistants. Our Year 1 and Year 2 classes also benefit from specific Teacher Assistants working across the Junior School. Each of our Teacher Assistants work closely with our classroom teachers to provide extra support and care for our students.

Our Early Years program focuses heavily on: literacy, numeracy, fine and gross motor development, social learning, handwriting, face to face communication and tactile learning.

Upper Primary Years: Years 3-6

The Upper Primary Years Program aims to nurture and guide our students, whilst at the same time building confidence as students become responsible for their own learning and behavior.

The goal for our Upper Primary Years Program is to provide high-order thinking activities to create independent learners. Student-centred learning and differentiation where we cater for different learning needs and styles is also a large focus in these age groups. Facilities such as our ‘Makery’, Flexible Learning Areas, Music rooms and Junior School Resource Room also provide opportunities for students to engage in learning in meaningful, relevant ways.
