The College's Junior School for students from Years 3 to 6 is focused on developing each girl's strengths in a supportive and caring environment. This exceptionally well-resourced learning precinct instils in students the attributes of participation, exploration, a sense of belonging and mutual respect, and provides students with extensive leadership opportunities and an enriched curriculum in all key learning areas.
Throughout the Junior School years, students use technology to support learning processes and practices, including interactive whiteboards in all classrooms and laptop computers from Year 5.
Core subjects assist with the development of a firm foundation, with support available for girls requiring additional assistance in literacy and numeracy, and more challenging activities to engage girls requiring extension. Specialist teachers plan and implement programs in Physical Education, Performing Arts, Visual Arts and French. Learning is enhanced through the development of critical and creative thinking skills, and through the provision of an excellent range of extra-curricular opportunities in sport and the arts.
The Junior School's pastoral care and academic programs are closely linked, with staff working to develop in each student a feeling of self-worth, so that they may achieve their individual potential. The Peer Support, Social Development and Leadership programs foster the development of values such as commitment, self-discipline, cooperation and compassion, and the Outdoor Education Program seeks to develop skills of leadership, independence and initiative in an enjoyable atmosphere.
Junior School girls enjoy access to all relevant College facilities.
After school care is available in the Junior School.
