Central to our philosophy is the belief that pupil motivation and self-esteem are undermined, not when too much is expected of them, but too little. Students need to be challenged by offering them an array of learning experiences, by setting high standards and by providing opportunities for students to be responsible and accountable for their learning. We believe that we will achieve this goal by providing a demanding, adventurous and well-balanced curriculum.
Our Middle School is staffed by a team of talented homeroom teachers who are committed to working with this age group.
Our Middle School program provides the means for students to experience a smooth transition from primary to the senior school in an environment that fosters a sense of belonging, stability, security and happiness.
The curriculum in Year 6 is mandated by the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) and is delivered in the first year of our Middle School. Subjects include English, HSIE, Mathematics, Science, Visual Arts and Positive Education (all taught by the homeroom teacher) and specialty subjects of Drama, PDHPE, Music and Language (French or Japanese)..
In term 3 of Year 8, students begin the process of choosing electives for Year 9.
