Welcome to Junior School!
In the Junior School years, as children grow, their sense of themselves and their world expands. They begin to see themselves as members of larger communities. They are interested in and like to speculate on other times, places and societies. They begin to understand and appreciate different points of view, develop the ability to think in more abstract terms and undertake sustained activities for longer periods.
Students' abilities to work collaboratively and to develop their social skills are fostered by activities which require group planning and decision making, and interaction with people inside and outside their classroom. They are given increased responsibility for managing and organising activities, individually and in groups of varying sizes, especially through the leadership program.
Increasingly students learn to draw on a wider range of sources of information in answering questions and consider phenomena more widely. Students explore a wider range of technologies and forms of communication and representation
Students are supported in their personal development through a caring class teacher the support of a number of specialist teachers.
As well as the Archdiocesan Religious Education Curriculum which is taught by the class teachers, students also participate in school and class masses. Most school days begin with Quiet Prayer Time where time is set aside for prayer, meditation and reflection. Students are also prepared to receive the Sacraments of Penance (Year 3), Eucharist (Year 4) and Confirmation (Year 6). At the conclusion of each sacramental program, students return to their parishes to receive the sacrament.
