Primary Years

Developing personal responsibility in learning

Primary Years Program (Years 2-6)

Students in Year 2-6 are able to enjoy the beautiful setting of the Junior School campus, which includes several playgrounds, outdoor basketball courts, an oval, a basin area surrounded by trees, and a Multi-Purpose Centre space for indoor activities. 

Learning Spaces

Classrooms are fully air-conditioned and are beginning to reflect a more flexible approach to student learning styles.

Learning spaces are set up to provide a stimulating and caring environment where students have opportunities to further build on the Literacy and Numeracy Skills from the Early Years as well as build and extend their critical thinking and collaborative learning skills.  A contemporary research-based teaching and learning approach is designed to develop inquiry skills, deeper understanding and learning connections for future academic growth.

Specialist Teachers

Subject-specific specialist teachers support the work of home group teachers in Mandarin, Japanese (Year 4-6), Music and HPE.  Robotics classes are incorporated into the Year 5 and 6 curriculum and Visual Arts is also offered to Year 6 students as they transition into the Senior School.

Real World Opportunities

Cross campus learning and off campus excursions provides students with experiences to discover many new real world opportunities during the primary years.  They begin to see themselves as independent and active participants in the world around them.

The extensive music and sporting co-curricular opportunities allow students to engage in a number of different sporting teams, ensembles, choirs and performance groups.

Programs

In addition to the delivery of extensive pastoral, curricular and co-curricular programs, leadership development is a key focus for the students who enter into Year 5 and 6.  Nurturing students to develop confidence, resilience and inter-personal skills prepares students to transition into the next phase of their educational journey in the Senior School.
