The new Primary School is located on the south side of the Kormilda campus, after the main reception building.

The Australian Curriculum is being implemented through an inquiry-based approach, incorporating Mathematics, English, Science, History, Geography, Mandarin, the Arts, Physical, Health and Outdoor Education, and a focus on social and emotional learning. In addition, Religious and Values Education (RAVE) forms a part of the core curriculum for students in the Primary Years. These subject areas provide students with knowledge and skills, which enable them to explore and understand the interconnected nature of the subject areas and their inquiries. We aim for students to regard themselves as life-long learners from the beginning of their formal education.

Through their additional language studies, students experience the sounds of Mandarin through song and story. Meaning is enjoyed through facial expression, body language, movement, props and visual aids. The songs and stories are chosen to scaffold vocabulary and sentence patterns, enabling students to make meaningful connections. Over the Primary Years, students develop confidence in singing rhymes, interacting in plays, and responding to a variety of classroom language. These experiences will allow the students’ brains to network the syllables, tones and sentence structures of Mandarin in a meaningful context.
 
Outside play and engagement is also a feature of the Primary program. Involvement in the garden program sees students planting, growing and harvesting herbs and vegetables for the purpose of incorporating the produce in the kitchen program, and hopefully inspiring them to become more involved in assisting in these areas at home.

The Sensory Garden is also an aspect of the playground, which provides children with a space for taking some time out and relaxing in quiet reflection.

The adventure playground was created in consultation with our Primary Years students, and we believe it ticks all the boxes! This new facility provides opportunities for gross motor skills development in upper and lower body, co-operative play, balance and flexibility challenges and simply a place in which to have fun.
