Today, we expect and demand much from our children – and from an earlier age. Balancing our expectations and the right children have to grow in their own time is paramount. Kids need to be kids, and learning from doing is the key.
This philosophy starts in our five day Transition program, where we look to develop skills that go beyond making children ready for Kindergarten, but for all of their schooling and indeed life itself. Our Learn to Swim program and Gymbaroo (PE) classes promote healthy living, which is critical to learning success. From this foundation, with the support of parents, we work to engage each boy and girl by providing appropriate challenges in a caring, safe and happy environment.
Committed to educational excellence, they seek to light the spark and ignite a passion for learning and life. Being confident to speak to others, working and playing as part of a team, developing resilience and independence in and out of the classroom, and wanting to take on new things – these are hallmarks of the boys and girls who have attended Junior School at TAS. We welcome you all to join with us in what is an exciting and rewarding adventure.
Head of Junior School, Ian Lloyd
