Our girls love to learn. We aim to instill an enthusiasm for knowledge that will support and enhance their learning as they progress through school.
A strong foundation is essential in ensuring sound academic and social development for future learning. PLC Sydney's Junior School provides a broad values-based education, with its focus on academic excellence underpinned by a strong pastoral care and rich co-curricular program which endeavours to develop in children an enthusiasm and curiosity for learning, whilst building confidence and self-esteem. Our teachers deliver stimulating lessons that are challenging and fun, using technology when appropriate, to support learning.
Junior School students study a broad and exciting curriculum, largely determined by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), including English, Mathematics, Science and Technology, History and Geography (HSIE), Creative Arts, Music, PDHPE, Languages including French or Chinese, and Christian Studies, supported by a strong cultural, sporting and co-curricular offering. We promote excellence and are committed to reaching every student.
We welcome and encourage open and positive communication and involvement with parents as we seek to foster confident, caring and independent lifelong learners.
Private tuition is also available in Speech, Instrumental Music and select sports.
Core values underpin all that we do. They provide a framework for our lives and shape our thoughts, feelings and actions. In a community of Grace we are brought together in Reverence (Heart), Wisdom (Head) and Service (Hands).
Students have different abilities and learning styles and we have a comprehensive extension and support program in place to support the diverse needs of our students.
Specialist teachers in literacy and numeracy provide regular support in the classroom and in small groups, according to student needs. These teachers work closely with classroom teachers to develop programs and assess and monitor student progress.
A specialist EALD (English as an Additional Language or Dialect) teacher is also available to work with students whose first language is not English. The EALD program is delivered in small groups or to individuals.
Our comprehensive gifted and talented program caters for students in the following ways:
Known for academic excellence, PLC Sydney has a dedicated Futures Centre which caters for gifted and talented children across Sydney. It is one of the longest running programs of its kind in Australia.
Our teachers are inspiring, kind and caring. They make learning fun.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program is for girls who are quite independent and ready for school. When they have completed the Pre-K program, they are ready to go into Kindergarten, comfortable with pre-literacy, pre-numeracy, and the demands of a school routine—and they do it all through play.
The benefits of our exceptional program include:
