In the Primary Years (Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6), your child will develop a desire to explore, broaden their thinking and build strong foundations in the core Learning Areas. Our supportive, inclusive environment ensures each child is understood and valued as an individual. Our innovative educators spark students’ curiosity, awe and wonder, inspiring a real love of learning that will be instilled and continued long into the future.
Educational programs are engaging and challenging, with a focus on meeting individualised learning needs. Students remain with their class teacher for the core learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences. Class teachers also focus on the wellbeing of your child, ensuring that their safety, social and emotional needs are met, checking in regularly. Our specialist teachers take their classes in dedicated facilities for Art, Music, Physical Education, Library and Modern Greek Studies. Religion is also a compulsory subject in the Primary Years.
At the end of Term 1, as we’ve gotten to know your child, you will be invited to attend a Parent-Student-Teacher interview where we will set goals for the remainder of the year. At the end of Term 2, you will receive a Semester Report and Student Portfolio.
To speak directly to your child’s educator on their progress to date, St. Andrew’s Grammar will host a Learning Journey event and/or Parent-Student-Teacher Interview towards the end of Term 3. Lastly, you will also receive a Final Report and Student Portfolio at the end of Term 4.
Learning through hands-on activities and encouraging students to ask ‘why’, forms the basis of how the curriculum is enacted in our Early Years programs. Students remain with their class teacher for the core learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences, with specialist teachers for Physical Education, Library, Art, Music, Modern Greek Studies and Religion.
