Junior School Centre
Our purpose-built Mavis Parkinson Junior School is home to our boys and girls from Years 2 to 6, the Junior Grammar Administration Centre, our comprehensive Angela Geertsma Junior Library and the Bright Sparks Workshop.
In Junior School our boys and girls continue to thrive in an inspiring community guided by enthusiastic, highly experienced teachers who love what they do.
Junior Grammar’s rigorous academic curriculum continues to focus on building numeracy and literacy skills. It also caters to a wide range of learning styles and interests including:
- E-STEAM (Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) lessons from Prep to Year 6
- Higher Order Thinking Strategies based on the Dimensions of Learning Framework
- Designated problem solving lessons from Year 2 to Year 6
- Specialist lessons taught by specialist teachers in specialist classrooms for Art, Drama, Music, Dance, Languages, Physical Education and Library
- Digital Technology
Opportunities for learning support and extension are available both in and out of the classroom.
An addition, our instrumental program sees every child in Years 3 to 6 learn a different instrument (provided by the School) each year, across keyboard, strings, brass and woodwind.
Each of our spacious classrooms has its own wet area and mini computer laboratory with iPads and laptops for classroom use. The School also facilitates a 1:1 laptop program from Year 4. All rooms are air-conditioned, have interactive whiteboards and look out over the treetops of our Junior School rainforest.
Our boys and girls learn and adopt the Junior Grammar values. They are encouraged to follow School and classroom rules through a reward and House points system that is focused on positive reinforcement and the satisfaction of good behaviour and a job well done.
