Primary Years

We strive to ensure the Primary Years learner is a confident and creative individual, an active and informed young person who is ready to take their place in society.

In Years 3 and 4, students become more independent; they communicate with others more effectively. English and Mathematics continue to be a priority, and Literacy and Numeracy are developed across all learning areas. The curriculum further builds the essential knowledge and skills in Literacy, consolidating ‘learning to read and write’.

In Years 5 and 6, students develop an ability to take positive actions for their wellbeing; they relate to others and communicate well with others; they ask challenging questions and seek answers; they make informed decisions and act responsibly. The development of information and communication technology skills increases across the curriculum at this level.
