Middle Years: 5-6

This is an important time for self-discovery.

We are nurturing young adolescents who are quickly developing physically, emotionally, socially, spiritually and intellectually. Our aim is to help each student achieve their full potential.

The curriculum covers the core learning areas but also encourages:

  • cooperative learning
  • thinking and problem solving skills
  • leadership and social skills
  • environmental awareness
  • technology

Middle Years students learn best when they are engaged with the subject matter through experiences such as role playing, simulations, teamwork and exploration outside the classroom. Dynamic discussions are designed to relate to issues and ideas we know Middle Years students are thinking about.

Our goal is to develop the skills for critical thinking and understanding that come from interacting with new information.
