In the Junior School, we recognise that boys have different needs as they move through their early learning and primary years.
As Head of the Junior School, I have the pleasure of being involved in the first and most formative years of your son’s education.
In Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten, we tap into your child’s natural curiosity and inspire a love of learning through guided play and inquiry-based activities.
As he progresses to Junior Primary, our focus is on ensuring he develops his skills and confidence in literacy and numeracy. We teach the Australian Curriculum within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. This encourages boys to wonder about their world and recognise connections between learning areas.
At Scotch, we recognise that every boy develops at a different rate intellectually, physically and emotionally. We meet the challenge of creating a positive foundation for school by providing a broad-based curriculum that enables each boy to explore a wide variety of intellectual, physical, and creative opportunities at his own pace. Foremost in the Junior School, we aim to provide a learning environment in which students feel happy, productive and secure.
I invite you to contact the College to arrange a tour of Junior School and see our community in action. Additionally, we are pleased to offer a ‘day in the life’ at Scotch College where your son can gain some insight into the rich experiences on offer at the College. Please contact Admissions to arrange this.
Mrs Maria Hodges
Head of Junior School
