Foundation & Intermediate
The Junior Primary years of learning serve the needs of children in the Foundation Years (Prep – Year 2) and students in Intermediate Years (Year 3 – Year 6). Across this range of ages, children's interests, needs and experiences change. These needs are reflected in the academic and pastoral programs that operate in the Primary Years.
Our focus is always on the whole student as education involves academic, emotional, physical and spiritual welfare, as children learn to live and work in various social and community contexts. To achieve these outcomes we use a range of teaching methods, including those that promote worthwhile thinking strategies (Bloom's Taxonomy, De Bono, and Multiple Intelligences). We organise the curriculum using both integrated and discrete subject methods. At times we structure lessons so that children are in needs-based groups and at other times children of all abilities share in rich learning experiences together.
