In Junior School our learning aims to encourage problem solving, creativity, critical thinking and independence in partnership with parents, students and teachers.

The Junior School Curriculum is based on the NSW Board of Studies syllabus documents and strongly emphasise the development of strong literacy and numeracy skills. Macquarie Anglican Grammar students participate in the National Assessment Programs – Literacy and Numeracy.

Macquarie’s curriculum and teaching programs are founded upon meeting the social, emotional, physical and academic needs of the individual child. The staff at Macquarie are committed to the growth of each individual child and provide a safe learning environment aimed to engage and develop students minds.

Our students develop resilience and confidence through the challenges and rigour of our academic program. Students are encouraged to think of themselves as part of the global community and make informed decisions through inquiry and visible thinking.
