Reception - Year 6
Excitement and wonder characterise the Junior Campus, and our skilled and passionate staff inspire and develop a deep sense of natural curiosity and inquiry to enable students to build new knowledge and a better understanding of the world they inhabit. This is where our boys start their educational journey.
Learning experiences are enhanced by our innovative Junior Campus facilities, which are designed to meet the requirements of primary-aged students in a 21st Century context. Classrooms are energetic, colourful, and busy, with the boys fully engaged in investigative learning tasks.
The Junior Campus, located next to the spacious city parklands, provides our students with access to the great facilities that the city centre has to offer including the SA Museum, Art Gallery, Botanic Gardens, and more. All classes use these areas as an extension of the classroom and visiting them regularly is part of their everyday learning experiences.
At the Junior Campus, we celebrate the diversity and the achievements of each of our students. Within this supportive environment, students are challenged to excel personally and academically. Our boys feel a strong sense of belonging, well-being, and purpose. They are defined by their willingness to care for each other and those around them and are given the opportunities to explore and learn in their own way.

Gifted & Talented
We have long moved away from the notion that giftedness is solely based on a student’s IQ or is indeed an innate quality that one is born with and is imbued with for life.
Driving our students' learning is the commitment to challenge students to think independently and draw on a variety of techniques to help them understand information.
Learning to play music not only provides a great skill but has lots of additional benefits for students.
The House system is a structure that develops relational learning and is focused on student wellbeing.
Family collaboration and connection are essential to the child’s academic and developmental growth.
