Our Junior School is a safe and collaborative environment where students learn the skills of problem solving, creativity, critical and visible thinking, and independence.
The Junior School curriculum is built on core subject areas and is supported by a range of exciting, challenging and innovative academic, pastoral and sporting programs. Macquarie’s curriculum and teaching programs are founded upon meeting the social, emotional, physical and academic needs of the individual child.
Students from Kindergarten to Year 6 enjoy English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, History, Geography, Creative Arts, Christian Development, and Personal Development, Physical Education and Health (PDHPE) as well as many co-curricular and sporting opportunities allowing our students, teachers, and parents to work cooperatively in an enjoyable context that is very different to the normal classroom; thus providing an important means of building relationships and providing pastoral care.
Our teaching staff are highly professional and passionate about providing an engaging learning setting and use a holistic approach to ensure tailored support for our students. The staff at Macquarie are committed to the growth of each individual child and providing a safe and supportive learning environment. Our classroom spaces are modern, functional and provide flexibility for students for the individual ways in which they learn and grow.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is available for students in the year before they commence primary school, and uses educational and developmental foundations that are research-based for quality outcomes that best prepare students for Kindergarten. Children attending our Pre-Kindergarten program are provided with opportunities to develop school-readiness skills by cooperatively working with others and taking part in activities that build on their abilities and interests in a supportive academic environment. Pre-Kindergarten provides a strong foundation for our student’s success at school by developing positive attitudes towards learning, early Literacy and Numeracy skills, experimental Science and STEAM skills, creative experiences, thinking and problem solving skills, fine and gross motor skills and independence and confidence.
