We understand just how important the early years of a child’s life are in creating the foundation for lifelong learning and development.
Our trained early years specialists are experts at designing and delivering quality learning programs that are age and developmentally appropriate for all children.
Providing opportunities for play is a key feature of our early years program, because it allows children to learn as they discover, create, improvise and imagine. When children play they develop many skills, including problem solving, critical thinking, testing out ideas, and building a deeper understanding of the world around them.
In the junior school, our focus is on equipping our students with the skills to become self-motivated, engaged learners who take ownership for their own learning.
We do this by providing a curriculum that is tailored to the students’ diverse educational needs and interests. We offer:
- 1 on 1 support for Literacy and Numeracy
- Extension programs from Year 2 onwards
- Opportunity for students to incorporate technology to enhance their learning.
- The Sacrament of Penance in Year 3 and First Holy Communion in Year 4.
In the senior school, we work to further develop independence and ‘real world’ life skills in our students, such as effective communication, working in teams and building leadership capability.
Some of the ways we do this include:
- Offering an annual Year 6 camp where students can build friendships and life skills
- Promoting a what it is to be a good digital citizen in a technologically driven world
- Offering the Sacrament of Confirmation
