The upper primary years of schooling are an important stage as students look for new challenges, eager to learn more about the world around them and their place in it.
Children at this age have a real thirst for knowledge, driven by the wealth of information available to them instantly and at any time online.
We understand that the life of an 11 year-old now is very different to that of their parents and teachers at the same age, and that the old ways of teaching are unable to meet modern year 5 and 6 students’ potential abilities and understandings. That’s why we have developed a unique program for learners at this stage, designed to present them with the challenges they seek and instil in them a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their secondary education and beyond.
Our year 5 and 6 students have dedicated, specialist educators across all subjects; they learn Mathematics from a mathematician and Science from a scientist. The curriculum covers English, Science, Mathematics, Humanities, Critical Thinking, languages, Digital Technology, Physical Education, Art and Music, all taught by specialist teachers and in specialist classrooms.
Our program provides students in years 5 and 6 with a greater challenge, ensuring they remain engaged and excited in their learning and building in them the learning dispositions, confidence and critical thinking skills they will need to embrace their future.
