Prep to Year 6
Our primary school is a place of fun and discovery!
Our teachers understand that every child learns differently and through the fostering of positive student-teacher relationships, we are able to focus on each student’s individual needs.
In primary school, our students establish life-long friendships within a loving community of teachers, staff and students. We provide a firm foundation of strong literacy and maths skills that are balanced with holistic, outdoor experiences aimed at developing the whole child.
Along with an academically sound core-curriculum, your child will also benefit from:
- Experiences with nature in the Kitchen Garden Program from Year 2
- Yearly camps starting in Year 4
- Emotional and social development through 'Positive Living Skills' and 'Second Step Program', which extends from Prep to Year 6
- Performing Arts and sporting opportunities
- Encounter, our holistic religious education curriculum, and weekly Chapel services
Set within the framework of a Biblical, Christian worldview, our primary academic curriculum is consistent with both State and Federal Government requirements.
Core subjects include:
- LOTE - Japanese
- Health and Physical Education
- Religious Education
Kitchen Garden Program
This program promotes healthy lifestyle choices and teaches primary students from Years 2-6 to grow, harvest and prepare their own seasonal produce each week. Our beautiful garden was designed and built by members of our school community. It also acts as an ‘outdoor classroom’ for a wide range of additional learning opportunities ranging from environmental studies to art.
Second Step Program
A holistic approach to building supportive communities for every child through social-emotional learning.
The Positive Living Skills Wellbeing Initiative
Positive Living Skills is an inclusive and truly preventative evidence-based initiative designed to support children to learn skills for maintaining mental wellbeing AND to support educators and school leaders to promote positive behaviour within the school community, while supporting educators and families
Our primary school camps are fun and exciting, but also provide unique opportunities to teach academic, personal and social skills. Students are encouraged to take part in challenges that promote an active lifestyle, foster the building of trust and participation and encourage safe risk-taking in controlled contexts.
