Primary School – Years Prep to 6
Throughout the Primary School children are given opportunities to support and develop their God-given gifts whilst being individually valued and nurtured.
Through a multi-age classroom structure, teachers intentionally focus on meeting the needs of the individual by adapting the curriculum to fit the students through differentiated learning.
At Geelong Lutheran College, the classroom teacher delivers the majority of the curriculum, but students also have specialist Art, Physical Education, Music, Science and LOTE (German) teachers and Literacy Intervention.
Classes enjoy the use of Middle and Senior School specialist facilities, whilst co-curricular activities consist of educational camps in Years 3-6 as well as cultural and sporting opportunities.
PRIMARY SCHOOL (P-2)
Children are educated in a caring and nurturing environment that prioritises the building of essential skills and knowledge.
The early Primary classroom is recognised by a safe and supportive learning environment where the laying of strong foundations in literacy and numeracy play a key role in a student’s growth and development.
The Buddy program enables older children to get to know and learn to care for younger children and assists with the smooth transition of kindergarten children into the school.
During these early years of primary schooling students are engaged in stimulating activities which cater for individual learning styles and needs as they grow and develop.
PRIMARY SCHOOL (3-6)
Habits of learning
Students build and extend on the skills learnt in the previous Primary years as they progressively develop independence through structured, independent and group learning activities. Interpersonal development is consolidated and leadership skills are introduced and reinforced through a dedicated leadership program.
By developing the skills and strategies to become independent, inquiring and caring young people, students are well prepared for the Middle School.
