Learning should be fun! The Program is designed to promote sound spiritual, physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child in the very important early years.
This is done through a comprehensive program that provides your child with ample opportunities to develop their natural abilities in all areas.
Primary School 1 – 6
Our Primary program builds on the foundations set in the Early Childhood years.
An emphasis is on students gaining a sound foundation in Numeracy and Literacy, while at the same time developing a love of learning.
A traditional Primary School curriculum is followed, strongly emphasising learning the basics with a Christian emphasis. Close contact with parents is vital part of the primary years.
Responsive Education adds a new point of view on responding to individual students who are at educational risk, that are just below the benchmark and talented students to create a culture that celebrates diversity and builds on the strengths of each student.
