Students in our Junior Years are provided with a holistic education that recognises
the importance of every child’s academic, physical, social and
emotional development, in a supportive and challenging environment.
Focus on Fundamentals
Key focuses include building strong literacy and numeracy skills,
allowing opportunities for students to think and express themselves
creatively, encouraging collaborative and team-based activities,
developing critical thinking skills and providing opportunities for
authentic problem solving. The use of ICT is embedded into daily
activities and programmes. We aim to ensure that all children are able
to build a solid foundation in key learning areas while developing the
necessary self-esteem and confidence to reach their potential.Learning
is done at a carefully planned and manageable pace that fully prepares
them to gently transition into the Middle Years.
