ENGAGING AND GROWING
With a Christ-centred curriculum, dedicated teachers, parent partnership and a focus on catering for each student’s individual needs and abilities, our primary students engage in stimulating learning experiences that support their growth during these vital years.
Our learning community thrives on a differentiated curriculum, positive relationships and encouragement. Dynamic and passionate educators foster a love for learning, sparking curiosity and wonder in our students with authentic experiences that delve into a wide range of disciplines. Our students are supported in their learning and extended in their thinking. Specialist programs involving STEM, Japanese, focus groups and learning support provide rich and expansive learning opportunities for our students. The teaching of literacy and numeracy skills continues to be a fundamental priority during these primary years.
At Illawarra Christian School we encourage a growth mindset which nurtures resilience and promotes positive attitudes towards learning. Teachers engage with their students through direct teaching strategies, collaborative and exploratory learning methods, and design processes. They care for individual student needs as they partner with parents and are supported by learning support and enrichment staff.
Leadership opportunities, a comprehensive creative arts program and awareness-raising events for charities empower our students to develop a servant-hearted attitude in their relationships with others. Community engagement is key, and involvement in the global community is encouraged as students develop an outward-focused, biblical perspective of the world. Stage 3 is an exciting time as we work within the broader school community to prepare our students for a smooth transition into secondary school.
