Kindy to Year 4
Providing each child with the social and academic skills needed to interact and explore the world as confident and effective learners.
Educating for the future
The learning journey at St Demo’s honours the developmental stages in a student’s life. Based on leading educational research and the best of today’s technologies, we prepare students for the future by teaching them how to think critically and creatively, how to communicate effectively and how to lead and work both independently and collaboratively.
The primary years lay the foundations for life-long learning.
Kindergarten to Year 4 provides each child with the social and academic skills needed to interact and explore the world as confident and effective learners.
Play based Inquiry (Kindergarten) and Guided Inquiry (Year 1-4)
In the early years of Primary the structure of learning is mostly teacher lead but the focus is on foundation learning through play.
Students in the foundation years, while learning core concepts of literacy and numeracy, also learn how to learn. They develop the dispositions and behaviours required to express ideas and respond to others.
The delivery of collaborative lessons in purpose built learning spaces provides a dynamic, engaging learning environment. The learning environment, then, is designed for collaborative work working at tables.
