Our experiences include a student-led café and a maths-based banking program, where our students apply skills and test themselves.

Fundamental skills and growth

Our Year 6 students become our school leaders. Their confidence has grown through our arts, sport and science programs, and this is their time to shine. Through Years 3 – 6 we continue to focus on developing strong literacy and numeracy skills. Our approach equips our students to develop the essential work habits that lay the foundation for future learning.

Student learning and achievement

We know each student and we monitor how each child is developing by using regular assessments. This information lets us know what students can do, know, understand and feel at different stages in the learning process and allows each child to demonstrate newly acquired skills and knowledge in a variety of ways. 

We embrace the Australian Curriculum across all learning areas:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Humanities (History and Geography, Civics & Citizenship, and Economics) Technologies
  • Healthy and Physical Education
  • The Arts
  • LOTE

Our teachers use the explicit instruction method to teach fundamental skills and knowledge. This is a structured way to teach academic skills. Students are guided to learn new skills with clear explanations, and opportunities to practice that skill until they achieve mastery.

Ready for the transition to secondary school

Our Year 6 students become our school leaders, confident and knowing who they are. Our students leave us confident, resilient, capable, compassionate and ready to learn at the next level at secondary school.
