Junior Primary

Pre-Primary, Year 1 and Year 2

The junior primary years are critical to the foundation of literacy, numeracy, creativity, inquiry and social skills. The Pre-Primary to Year 2 programme provides students with a core of essential learning that promotes a depth of understanding across a variety of subjects. The curriculum is dynamic, well balanced and academically challenging with blocks of learning dedicated to the Key Learning Areas with specialised instruction in sport, languages, music, library and art.

We believe all children are unique and wish to guide them in maximising their potential. Staff recognise that their role is about inspiring our children, making learning fun and ensuring that all children experience success.

Learning includes whole class, group and individual activities that focus on a holistic understanding of ideas and concepts. Learning is focused on the total growth of the developing child, meeting intellectual, physical and emotional needs while educating hearts and minds.

The range of academic needs of students are catered for by providing support and extension to those in need. Students move from concrete ideas to the abstract as they develop understandings of concepts and skills within literacy and numeracy.

Through discussion, role-play and real problem-solving, students develop a wide range of thinking strategies and group participation skills.

Junior Primary is about setting a solid grounding in positive work habits, dress and behaviour standards. It’s about helping our children establish positive friendships and to teach them how to work and play effectively with others while developing their own resilience and perseverance skills.

The home-school connection is important and we welcome family members to the school, to participate in school activities, excursions and as classroom helpers during the term.
