Junior School 2016

Junior School students (Grade Foundation and 1) had a good start to the new academic year. Grade 1s welcomed the new students into their classrooms and made new friends. It is pleasing to see them begin to learn school routines and rules to have a wonderful learning time together.

Foundation students have been introduced to the play based Investigations. It encourages them to share space and resources with each other cooperatively. The children are supported in making choices with their learning and thinking creatively that suit their interests. It provides them an opportunity to develop their oral language and negotiation skills.
