A firm foundation.
Welcome to Penrith Anglican College’s Primary School
Students from Pre-K through to Year 6 are cared for in a compassionate Christian environment where Christ is at the centre of everything we do. Your child will know that they are valued and belong to a wonderful and diverse community that seek to serve Christ.
Students develop a growing knowledge of themselves as learners
The Primary School is a dynamic environment where students are challenged to develop a growing knowledge of themselves as learners.
There are three streams of classes from Kindergarten to Year 6, with an additional literacy and numeracy teacher in Years 1 to 4.
Building confidence through Music, Dance and Drama
Students take part in weekly music lessons by qualified music teachers from the Secondary School and are given the opportunity to perform throughout the College year. Classes for students in Year 3–6 take place in our state-of-the-art Performing Arts centre which includes access to peripetetic studios for private tutoring and recording studio.
Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics
iSTEAM gives students in Stage 3 the opportunity to explore their scientific thinking and demonstrate their understanding through project-based learning. It also enables student to collaborate, design and to make and test their ideas and then communicate their findings to a wide audience of adults and students.
Sparking interests and developing strong sporting pathways
In the Primary School, students from Pre-K to Year 6 interact with a wide range of different sports to spark their interests and develop strong sporting pathways. Students have the opportunity to be involved in morning training sessions, school sport on a Friday and after school development squads.
Problem solving, critical thinking and creative thinking skills
At the heart of Primary Enrichment is the idea of students asking why? Out of why comes wonder, research and new ideas that encompass and nourish Problem Solving and Critical and Creative Thinking Skills to tackle the complex world that lays before them.
