Through the Early Years concept we provide a gradual age appropriate change in the curriculum thus ensuring a seamless transition to middle school and beyond.
From Kindergarten to Year 4 the class teacher is responsible for both delivery of the curriculum and for pastoral care. In addition the Junior School Chaplain takes the Faith and Life Program, including the weekly chapel services. Other specialist teachers take each class for Health and Physical Education, Japanese, Library and Music.
In keeping with the School’s philosophy we provide a differentiated curriculum for the students in the Junior School. The underpinning notion behind differentiating the curriculum is to better cater for different learning styles and abilities. A differentiated curriculum tailors the educational program to actively engage all students and enrich their learning experiences.
Kindergarten and Prep are involved in project work based on the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Facilitating appropriate placement to cater for individual differences is achieved by assessment. The results of assessment stays with the student, on file, as she progresses through the school.
