Our Early Childhood area of the school consists of: two Kindergarten classes; two Pre Primary, one Pre Primary/Year 1, two Year 1 classes; three Year 2 classes, two Year 3 classes and one Year 3/4 class.
All staff collaboratively plan based on the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum. Staff focus on explicit teaching (what needs to be taught), intentional teaching (activities with focussed intention), in a play based ‘hands on’ environment. Activities are based on the children’s needs and interests. The curriculum focuses on: Literacy, Numeracy and Socio-Emotional Development. Students also learn about Science, History, and Technology and Enterprise.
Health and Well being is integral to a holistic program and our students have over two hours of physical movement and instruction in Fundamental Movement Skills and Games Skills per week with our two specialist staff.
Our school also offers an excellent Arts program that is varied and inspiring. Weekly displays are in our office for viewing and enjoyment.
Some of our classes are multiaged which means there is more than one year level in the class. We believe this encourages and fosters academic and social development. Multi-Age Grouping Information.
We encourage families to visit our school and see the great experiences offered daily to our students.
