Prep to Year 6
Our Primary Years at Wisdom College are more than just an educational journey; they are a testament to our commitment to nurturing well-rounded individuals. Here, we create a happy and nurturing community that places immense importance on the holistic development of every child.
Our compassionate and skilled teachers are dedicated to providing the best possible education, with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills. We believe in empowering young learners to use language confidently and equipping them with the skills and knowledge to interpret the world around them, fostering effective participation in society.
Each day, our students engage in rich literacy and numeracy activities influenced by an inquiry-based approach. This approach encourages them to investigate, collaborate, question, explore ideas, and continuously practice their skills, ensuring a well-rounded education.
Our academic programs align seamlessly with the Australian Curriculum, and they are delivered by our caring and highly qualified staff who are committed to their own professional development. Our students in Prep to Year 6 benefit from a comprehensive curriculum that encompasses STEM, Performing Arts, Physical Education, Values, Languages, and Music.
At Wisdom College, our Primary Years provide the foundation upon which bright futures are built. Here, we celebrate the growth, exploration, and development of well-rounded individuals ready to embrace the world with confidence.
Supporting students where English is a second language
Many students that attend Wisdom College are part of a family that has come to Australia from different parts of the world. Wisdom College, a multicultural community, has many students learning English as their second or even third language.
Sometimes these students fall behind because they are not exposed to English as often as children whose parents only speak Standard Australian English. In order to help these students, an EALD teacher (English as an Additional Language / Dialect) works with the classroom teachers to identify and assist the children whose lack of exposure is affecting their progress.
Once the students have been identified as needing assistance, they are taught in small groups by the EALD teacher. Students are encouraged to continue with assistance in EALD classes for as long as both the classroom teacher and the EALD teacher consider that it may be necessary. Our goal is to help students to progress, to acquire better English and develop communication skills, which will help them cope better in the classroom and in future learning.
