It is here that the student is working on the adult they are to become. Social graces and etiquettes play an important role as they move into the stage of greater communication and the need for justice. Their minds move to greater abstraction and imagination and their concern for the community becomes greater. This is where their questions are to be answered through their own research and dedication to their own learning. Their enjoyment of project-based work develops both their knowledge and social interactions. Whilst the Montessori curriculum is still followed, the building blocks for an international curriculum are being set in place.
Sports and Culture
The Upper Primary students are offered a wide range of school sports from volleyball, netball, soccer, cricket, hockey to athletics. Our school coach designs the timetable each term according to the requirements of the students each term.
Art is presented to the Upper Primary students using the basic components of art. They learn concepts such as shape, line, shading and texture. Throughout the programme they are introduced to the use of various materials in choosing ways to express their talents.
Yoga is taught by a private company who teach good posture, stretching and strengthening, effective breathing, positive self-talk, gratitude and relaxation. A good start to an enriched life style.
Music forms part of the curriculum and therefore all of our Lower Primary students participate in singing, with our older students learning recorder.
