Junior School (F - Year 6)
Junior School – Foundation to Year 6
At the Faith Lutheran College Junior School, every student is known and valued as an important member of our community. We aim to provide an educational experience like no other; where students come first, learning goes deep and childhood is celebrated.
Progressive, sequential and inquiry based, the Curriculum at our Junior School is designed to develop confident learners who are creative problem solvers and capable decision makers.
Our caring team of dedicated educators work with each student to foster personal excellence and resilience, preparing each individual for the next step in their educational journey.
The Faith Lutheran College Early Learning Centre and Junior School is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) and is pursuing authorisation as an IB World School.
The IB philosophy, which we share, is —a commitment to improve the teaching and learning of a diverse and inclusive community of students by delivering challenging, high quality programmes of international education that share a powerful vision.
The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. The PYP program encourages students to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
Specialist Areas are delivered by specialist teachers and strengthen our Curriculum.
Vibrant and welcoming, visit our School and you will instantly feel comfortable in our dynamic and welcoming spaces.
Community is important to us at Faith Lutheran College. Our community of staff, students and parents regularly come together in the Harvest Centre for a time of worship and celebration. The Harvest Centre is a versatile space for community, learning and special church services and celebrations throughout the year.
The ‘Bush Block’ at our Junior School is certainly more than just a block of trees and shrubs. The tall native gums contrast against the blue skies, the snapping of twigs can be heard under-foot, and often visitors are welcomed by the call of birds and other wildlife. It’s a peaceful setting and one that students at our Junior School become familiar with from their early years. This outdoor classroom has become an important feature for lesson planning and learning. Transferable skills are developed and strengthened as students immerse themselves in our bush environment.
We believe vegetables are tastier when you have nurtured them from seed. Nurturing the Community Garden at the Junior School is a highlight for many students. Not only is there careful planning and teamwork involved, but our young entrepreneurs work with local restaurants to market and sell produce, learning many valuable maths and life lessons along the way.
