Junior School

In the Junior School, we see the building of strong relationships as vital. The relationships between students, staff, parents and the community are all highly valued. Through these strong relationships and with effective communication we get to know and understand your child. In this way we are able to cater for the individual needs of each child. We focus on each individual, with our goal being the development of the whole child.

The Junior School offers pastoral care, exceptional teachers, engagement with our community, co-curricular activities and a disciplined, nurturing learning environment. In every aspect, we strive to develop in each student the pursuit of academic excellence, self-confidence, community service and leadership.

Our Junior School is dedicated to providing a rigorous learning environment founded on global research that engages all learners. We continue to seek out innovative ways to further support the thinking skills, creativity and digital literacy of our students and staff. We provide them with the means and motivation to excel, to be adaptable and to develop problem solving skills.

Learning is personalized and class sizes are smaller than average. Teachers use various forms of assessment to build each student’s learning profile and determine what is needed to move their learning forward. Opportunities for extension and support are provided.

Specialist teachers work with students in the areas of Music, Art, Physical Education, Languages and Swimming.
