From the Dean of Junior School

All Saints’ College Junior School

All Saints’ College Junior School is proudly a coeducational environment committed to meeting the needs of all students. The student cohort consists of around 500 boys and girls with classes double streamed from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 4, and triple streamed in Years 5 and 6.

Within the Junior School we believe that children should feel safe at all times, and be treated with respect and kindness while gaining resilience and developing responsibility. Students are encouraged to be thoughtful in their actions, be active learners and enthusiastic participators and contributors in the life of the College and community.

As a College we take seriously our commitment to encouraging students to have a positive attitude to learning, including when they are challenged to gain deeper understanding and appreciation of the complexity of any given body of knowledge or set of skills. We seek to celebrate the uniqueness of each child and encourage self reflection to gain self knowledge, as well as an appreciation of how each one best learns, what they most value and how they can most effectively contribute and achieve success.

We encourage students to continue to be curious, ask questions and develop strategies for research and enquiry, while giving necessary attention to basic skill development. We work hard to deliver programs that inspire children while meeting the needs of each gender and their different interests and abilities. Our team of enthusiastic classroom teachers are at the centre of this commitment, dedicated to pastoral care and encouraging the growth of confident, capable and resilient young people.
