Primary School

Primary school is a dynamic environment where we foster a sense of belonging, a love of learning, and a deeper relationship with God.

With nurture and encouragement the key components of classroom culture, Primary School helps students grow in confidence, interact in more depth with new knowledge and skills, learn from one another, and develop learning responsibility.

Literacy and Numeracy is encountered in every context across the curriculum, forming a strong foundation for students’ future schooling. At the same time, Biblical Studies, Music, Sport, Technology and a range of extracurricular offerings give students an outlet for expression and provide opportunities to develop their individual interests and talents.

We are a multicultural school with a high proportion of students who come from backgrounds where English is their second language (ESL). Our literacy and numeracy programs take this fact into consideration. Additional learning support is provided for children assessed with significant remedial needs and students with low English language acquisition.

For children assessed with a disability, special needs teachers will work with parents, classroom teachers and experts to devise strategies that provide better access to learning and support.

Personal excellence is a focus in every classroom, with assessments and activities used as a basis for extending those who show greater levels of interest and ability. Students are streamed in Reading, Maths and Spelling, thus allowing for more targeted instruction and academic development.

Additional opportunities that challenge and extend learning, interests and talents are available through international competitions and assessments for schools (ICAS) and co-curricular activities such as Music Tuition (piano and guitar), Choir and Art.

  • Choir
  • Music Tuition
  • Sports Carnivals
  • Interschool Sports Competition
  • After-school Sports

Our classrooms are equipped with age-appropriate technology. This enhances the delivery of the curriculum, caters to a broad range of learning styles, and allows students to solve problems, work, and connect with each other and the world in modern ways. Regular access to technology in the computer lab is a part of the weekly program. Personal laptops are made available to students in Years 5 and 6, and iPads are available school wide. SeeSaw is used as a digital portfolio for students and used as a means of communication with parents.
