Our Classes

Kindergarten - Welcome to the wonderful world of Kindergarten

K Blue, Kindy Lilac and K Orange

Stage One - Welcome to 1 Purple, 1 Red, 1 Green, 2 Tangerine, 2 Rose & 2 Violet

Stage Two - Welcome to 3 Ruby, 3 Violet, 4 Bronze and 3/4 Aqua

Our Stage 2 classes comprise of a Year 3 and 4 classes. Our classrooms are an ideal learning environment where every student is valued and encouraged to do their absolute best.

Literacy is a strong focus in our class and we have embraced the creative and critical thinking aspects of the English Syllabus. In writing, we have been learning to write to persuade and entertain and we are reading a variety of quality texts.

We follow the NSW Mathematics Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum and remain consistent with the rest of the school in regards to numeracy content. We develop a range of mental and written strategies to solve problems in all strands of mathematics.

Examples of our learning in HSIE and Science and Technology include investigating human exploration of space. In Creative Arts we study the works of famous artists and draw inspiration from them to experiment with a variety of media to express ourselves imaginatively to produce work of a high standard.

We love participating in sport, especially PSSA where some of us get to play against other schools. 

Stage Three - Welcome to 5/6 Silver and 5/6 Gold

Stage 3 students are highly motivated and love learning. They are constantly provided with opportunities that build upon their strengths and weaknesses in an environment that emphasises creativity, problem solving and collaboration.

They have been studying historical texts and a variety of informative and imaginative texts. Some texts contain many literary devices that we endeavour to incorporate into our own texts where appropriate.

Highlights of 2019 included: Dance Sport, Canberra 3 day excursion, Showcase and the Maths Olympiad.

Our Stage Three students are considered the seniors of our school. They set a wonderful example for the junior grades. A highlight for our Year Six students is the Buddy system where seniors are buddied up with new Kindergarten students. They help our youngest students settle into school and guide them during their first year at school.

Everyday something wonderful happens in our Stage Three classes. The interactions and conduct of the students is something to behold!
