Junior Primary K-2

 

Our Kindy and Pre-Primary groups aim to provide a dynamic and caring environment for all children in our care. Through the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), we believe that building upon children's experiences and prior knowledge provides the best foundation for learning in early childhood.

 

The Early Years Learning Framework bases all learning on the following five learning outcomes:

•  Children have a strong sense of identity

•  Children are connected with and contribute to their world

•  Children have a strong sense of well-being

•  Children are confident and involved learners

•  Children are effective communicators

 

Fundamental to this framework is a view of children's lives as characterised by BELONGING, BEING and BECOMING.

 

"Play provides opportunities for children to learn, as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. Play provides a supportive environment where children can ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking". BELONGING, BEING and BECOMING. - The EYLF.

 

The Junior Primary classrooms are filled with displays and celebrate learning, discoveries and achievements. Junior Primary classes offer a thematic approach to the Curriculum. Each theme is carefully chosen with a consideration to the age and interests of the students.

 

 

Upper Primary 3-6

 

Upper Primary students are taught by one teacher most of the time, while involvement of several teachers begins to prepare students for the Secondary environment.

 

During the Upper Primary years, there is an emphasis on:

 

•  Increasing personal responsibility

•  Friendships and respectful relationships

•  Enthusiasm for learning

•  Developing a sense of pride in their efforts

•  Celebrating achievements

•  Preparation for secondary schooling
