Our Junior School is a safe, supportive and happy community in which our girls have a strong sense of belonging.
Our programs help the girls with strategies for positive interactions with others, learning to be healthy, happy and engaged. Our teachers ensure all our students feel secure and significant, relaxed and nurtured at school, listening and responding to their individual needs.
Through our House system, Service Learning and Leadership programs, our girls cultivate values such as teamwork, participation, collaboration, commitment and compassion.
Service learning is integral to the Christian faith of our College and an important contributor to our girls well-being. It promotes kindness and consideration for others.
Each year group from Pre-K to Year 12 focuses on one or more projects, learning about the needs of the community involved and organising fundraising activities and initiatives.
The Junior School is led by Community Service Captains who work with the teachers and year groups to select, promote and support a variety of service learning opportunities and charities such as raising funds for the Red Cross through the annual Red Cross Bumper Day.
Helping others not only makes us feel good, it is great for our mental and emotional well-being, and our self-esteem.
