We know that your child learns beyond the classroom.

Specialist teaching

So much of your child’s learning depends on experience that complements what goes on in the classroom class. We know this – that’s why we have a range of programs to extend or support each child, depending on their needs.

Reading and writing

Reading and writing are essential skills for all children to be successful learners.

We have an excellent in-class, systematic reading and writing program, however sometimes children need extra support to become more fluent and confident.  That's when a key literacy teacher works intensively with small group of children to accelerate their reading and writing skills.

Independence in middle school

Our Year 5 and 6 classes run as a Middle School Unit. The three teachers work together to foster the independence required as students continue to move towards senior schooling.

As a teaching unit, teachers work with groups and individuals to challenge them in their development and provide support at this important stage of their schooling.

Information Communication Technology

This is the digital generation and our teaching has been tailored to speak their language.  ICT is embedded through all your child’s learning, from the pod of computers and laptops in each classroom, through to our well-equipped computer suite. Students are able to use iPads, digital cameras and interactive whiteboards for research and presentations.
