Providing opportunity for students to succeed


The first four years of primary school are believed to be the most important years of school life as it is here that students acquire their basic skills of reading and numeracy.

Much of the work a Foundation child will do at the College for the first few months will seem to be play. However, to the child and the teacher, it will be very serious.

The College has focussed much of its resources in this area to give students a good start to their education. Once a child has started school, it is important that they attend regularly and are supported in their learning at home.

Not all children develop at the same rate, and it is important that parents do not compare their child’s progress with that of other children of the same age, or older brothers or sisters.

Students are continually monitored through our curriculum testing schedule. Students whom we believe are in need of intervention in literacy and numeracy will be supported through programs such as MiniLit and MacLit for phonics and reading and individualised intervention to suit specific student needs.
