Welcome to Primary.

The Primary Years continue to develop and apply foundational literacy and numeracy skills within increasingly complex situations.

Primary comprises of Years 3 – 6 and provides students with opportunities to engage in challenging and relevant learning opportunities while caring for others and the world around them.

The Primary Experience

Learning

The Primary Years continue to develop and apply foundational literacy and numeracy skills within increasingly complex situations. We strive for academic excellence across all curriculum areas and seek to develop resilient students who are prepared to take risks in their learning. Specialist instruction continues in the areas of Music, Physical Education, Technology and Languages.

Students are encouraged to develop thoughtful and sustainable practices and take action as a result of their learning. The culmination of our Primary learning journey is celebrated through Year 6 Exhibition. Exhibition draws upon the knowledge, attitudes, behaviours and skills students have developed over their entire schooling experience.

Opportunities

A progressive camping program is an integral part of the Primary experience at St. Peter’s. Camps provide students with the opportunity to undertake and conquer new challenges, develop teamwork, social skills and greater independence.

St. Peter’s produce high quality musical productions biennially. These fantastic events create lasting memories and showcase the amazing talents and teamwork of our students and staff. We offer multiple performance opportunities as part of music groups such as bands, choirs and percussion groups. Private instrument tuition is conveniently available for further development.

The Primary Years focus on integrating technology in learning. Students regularly engage in activities such as coding, robotics, green screen video creation and 3D printing design.

St Peter’s students participate in a range of sporting endeavours. There is an opportunity to represent the school during weekly competitive matches as well as regular gala days throughout the year. Developmental programmes run by external coaches are available in tennis, AFL and football (soccer) with a focus on the acquisition of new skills.

Leadership

We recognise the importance of developing greater independence and leadership skills within each child. Primary students are encouraged to become role models for younger children. All Year 6 students undertake specific leadership training and facilitate regular Buddy Group sessions consisting of peers from across the school community. We promote responsibility, empathy and the importance of serving others.
