Junior School

As a fully integrated R-12 school, St Mary's College provides all R-6 students the expertise of specialist teachers normally reserved for secondary schools. In addition we are able to use all on-campus facilities. Having a variety of specialist teachers enables students to make a smooth and successful transition from primary to secondary education.
The R-6 years are designed to meet the needs of students by delivering a relevant, contemporary and engaging curriculum that connects with the broader areas of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia and Sustainability. Learning area content is integrated in a meaningful way across several curriculum areas with a view to enriching and deepening student understanding. Units of work are underpinned by the 'General Capabilities' that aim to assist students to live and work successfully in the 21st Century.

Subjects for R-6 students include:

  • Religious Education
  • Art
  • Drama
  • Music
  • ICT Digital Technologies
  • English
  • PE/Health
  • Italian
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • HASS

There is one class at each year level from Reception to Year 5 and is overseen by the Junior School Director.
