The Junior School, Years 1 and Year 2, is a time of tremendous growth academically, socially, emotionally and physically for your child. Students are encouraged to develop their self-confidence, resilience and independence. They take more responsibility for their learning and develop compassion toward their peers, understanding the many similarities and differences that they share.
Teachers work together in teams to create an environment that nurtures and supports children across all areas of learning, teaching the skills they need to thrive and contribute to the world in which they live.
In Years 1 and 2, there is a strong emphasis on developing students’ literacy and numeracy skills. Information Technology is integrated where it adds value to the learning task and students have access to Notebooks or iPads.
Students are encouraged to be curious learners, respect themselves, others and the environment, demonstrate integrity, and be resilient. Teachers plan collaboratively to meet the individual needs of all students and believe every child will achieve academic, personal and social growth.
