The Primary School is a dynamic environment where students are challenged to develop a growing knowledge of themselves as learners.

Applying a common language and targeted teaching strategies that continue throughout a student’s learning journey, the Primary School’s consistent approach empowers College students as they transform from children to confident young men and women, ready to take their place in the world.

Through the application of the College Learning Culture (link this to the Teaching Learning page) and with an emphasis on the development of student capacity to recognise the emotional, cognitive, social and strategic dimensions of learning, Primary School staff are committed to providing a rigorous and differentiated learning experience for each student in an engaging, safe and supportive environment.

The Primary School has three streams of classes from Kindergarten to Year 6, with an additional literacy and numeracy teacher in Years 1 to 4. The key learning areas include:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Performing Arts
  • Visual Art
  • History and Geography
  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.

College classroom teachers are also supported by Learning Support Teachers’ Aides as required. Our dedicated Learning Support team

Chess, Debating, Choir, Band, Drama, Dance, Science Club, Robotics, Excursions, Camps, Incursions, Leadership, Service and an extensive Sport Program add to the richness that is the Primary School experience at Penrith Anglican College.
