The Lower Primary School – Years 1 – 3

It is during the early developmental years that the framework for future learning is constructed. Our emphasis is on the acquisition of literacy and numeracy skills, the development of an enquiring mind and the establishment of a love for school and learning.

Our day starts at 8:30am and concludes at 3:10pm. The Lower Primary academic program has a strong focus on phonics and provides an excellent approach to learning to read and write. We use Sound Waves to help develop literacy skills in students through the use of flash cards, charts, Music, DVD and teacher instruction.
