Junior School

In our Junior School, we develop and enrich foundational skills.

Our Pre-Kinder to Year 2 students use an open mindset to engage in a variety of learning experiences to support the development of foundational skills.  In Year 3 – Year 6 students enrich these foundational skills through planned and innovative learning journeys.

At Macquarie, we place a strong emphasis on partnerships between parents, students and teachers.

Our Junior School is a safe and collaborative environment where students learn the skills of problem solving, creativity, critical and visible thinking, and independence. In preparing students for the future it is imperative that we incorporate 21st-century skills into our learning. At Macquarie, students are given opportunities to utilise technology daily through the use of apps such as See-saw and PM Readers, the use of Mathletics and Study Ladder, as well as our 1:1 device program starting in Year 5.

The Junior School curriculum is built on Literacy and Numeracy supported by a range of exciting, challenging and innovative academic, pastoral and sporting programs. Students can enjoy English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, History, Geography, Creative Arts, Christian Development, Personal Development, Physical Education and Health.
