Kindergarten - Year 6
When starting Primary School, you don’t want your child to be a little fish in a big pond. It’s so easy for children to get lost in the hustle and bustle when they start school.
At Medowie Christian School, you’re encouraged to partner with our teachers in educating your child. The Primary School is a warm, caring and friendly environment where young children flourish and parents always feel welcome.
You’ll be amazed what your child can achieve with teachers who notice them, ask about their interests, listen to them, laugh with them and believe in them. We know that students thrive when they are well known, well loved and well taught.
Our Primary School is an exciting place, where curiosity is fostered and imaginations flourish. The children are given opportunities to explore their interests and passions as their potential is lovingly nurtured by our dedicated and caring teachers.
How Children Learn
Alongside fostering the core skills that they’ll need throughout their academic lives, such as reading, writing, math and gross-motor skills, we also aim to provide primary-age children with a solid foundation of knowledge about the world around them. This will help them to become well-informed individuals who are empowered to develop their own opinions as well as their own unique strengths and talents.
Here at Medowie Christian School, we employ the best and highest performing teachers to nurture your children’s love for learning and social capabilities. Each of our teachers develops a relationship with your child and gets to know their strengths so they can help them flourish, as well as understand their weaknesses so that these can be addressed and developed.
Through a combination of guided learning and independent activities, your child will develop significantly from their first day. Children learn best when they are having fun, so we use a range of activities that make learning accessible for all abilities using a variety of techniques and resources. We monitor your child’s academic progression closely so that we can check they’re developing as expected and are well-equipped with the support they need as they make their way through the early years towards secondary school.
Developing Student Character
Whatever their background, your child will feel a sense of belonging when stepping through the doors of their Medowie Christian School classroom. We aim to foster a positive learning environment that champions wellbeing, kindness and the values that create a good citizen. Our teachers are shining examples for your child to follow while providing the structure and discipline that they need to move forward with their learning.
We work closely with parents and carers to ensure that any barriers or struggles are met with empathy and understanding, giving each student an equal chance to find strength at school. Each child is treated as an individual and supported throughout their journey with us. We aim to encourage interests and talents through our varied curriculum and creative teaching, building on their personality and unique quirks that make them who they are.
Our students develop meaningful friendships with their peers through play and group learning and these connections often last a lifetime. Our beautiful buildings and grounds foster a community environment that will give your child a sense of belonging.
