The upper primary years (Year 3-6)


Years 3-6

Young students in the Upper Primary Years have distinctive and diverse needs. These include intellectual, social, physical, emotional and psychological needs associated with adolescence, as well as needs that arise from different life circumstances, interests, skills and talents.


The school will endeavour to ensure students:


  • engage in purposeful, intellectually challenging learning
  • achieve success with structured opportunities
  • cope with their transition from year to year and from primary to secondary education
  • interact with teachers who are prepared to meet the distinctive and diverse needs of students during early adolescence.
