Welcome to Junior School
The Kindergarten to Year 6 students make up the Junior School at Swan Christian College. Contained fully within the grounds of the wider school, classes for the first eight years of schooling are grouped in learning clusters with access to specialist facilities not usually available to primary aged children. With a comprehensive support network, students enjoy an opportunity to thrive and learn through a program that recognises their individual needs and learning styles.
Please feel free to make an appointment to explore the opportunities for your children at our school. With regular tours also available we would love to talk to you about the possibility of partnering with you in the education of your children.
Mr Scott Puzey
Head of Junior School
It is the aim of the Junior School to establish firm educational, spiritual and emotional foundations, empowering all students to become adventurous lifelong learners.
In the Kindergarten and Pre-Primary classes we build the students understanding and knowledge through an educational philosophy that values students as exploratory and enquiring learners. An extensive array of learning opportunities is provided for students to extend their understanding and wonder of the world. Utilising a thematic approach, an engaging and comprehensive program of learning unfolds, building upon the skills and abilities of the individual.
As students move to the middle primary years, they are exposed to the latest teaching techniques for language acquisition. Learning teams are built around the students with the program enriched through ability groupings and additional support staff. A specialist music program commences, and students enjoy the ability to learn a foreign language with visiting teachers providing enrichment through the arts and physical education.
At Year 5 we enjoy the addition of another stream of students and increasingly our youngsters' work is marked by greater independence and an increase in educational technologies. The Bring Your Own Device program commences and strong ties are established between the end of the primary years and commencement of the high school program. An extensive Service Learning program continues throughout the Junior School providing opportunities for students to learn through serving others less fortunate than themselves.
With a great fusion of academic, spiritual and academic growth opportunities, Swan Christian College Junior School truly cares for the wholistic education of every child.
