Junior School

The foundations of confidence, kindness and a love of learning are developed in the Junior School as we seek to develop inquisitive, confident, creative and loving girls.

The Junior School offers an inspiring and interactive learning environment as collaborative teams of highly qualified, experienced educators build upon the early foundations for learning success.

The journey in the Junior School begins in our Reception - Year 2 Learning Centre. Here our girls explore their creativity, discover new ideas and build positive friendships. Our vibrant Junior Primary classrooms foster a sense of belonging and are designed to enhance curiosity, wonder and a love of learning.

Our academic program for learning is inquiry based, rigorous and inclusive of all students. We encourage our students to become critical and creative thinkers, to problem-solve, and to understand the connections between their learning and the real world.

With a growing awareness of our changing global society, Loreto students also pursue social entrepreneurialism and engage in leadership for action.

Our students exhibit strong inter-cultural understanding, kindness and respect for others. Nurturing Pastoral Care and Wellbeing programs also provide guidance and ensure that our girls flourish and achieve success.

Through personalised programs our girls emerge from their junior years with the confidence, resilience and self-reflective skills to become independent learners. Inspired to innovate, collaborate and reach their potential, our students lead their own learning effectively and are actively engaged in constructing new possibilities.

The key learning areas are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Health
  • Physical Education
  • the Arts (Music, Drama, Dance, Visual and Media Arts)
  • Languages (Chinese, French/Italian)
  • Religious Education
  • Technologies

Learning is meaningful and rewarding, with extensive opportunities to engage in co-curricular, leadership and enrichment programs. This includes our renowned performing arts program, as well as extensive music, dance, and sporting experiences.

Beyond our classrooms, learning extends into our natural play spaces, vegetable garden, playgrounds and outdoor maker space. Our Junior School is a place of discovery and deep learning, where confidence and a love of learning is developed in a dynamic contemporary environment.
