Our Primary School is a nurturing, caring and educationally challenging environment where our students enjoy their learning. We employ a team of dedicated and enthusiastic professionals who are prepared to work closely for the benefit of the students. It is this climate which maintains the essential value of the independent education we offer.
The Moama Anglican Grammar Primary academic program focuses on establishing a strong foundation in literacy and numeracy and is firmly based on the NSW Education Standards Authority curriculum:
- Geography and History
- Science and Technology
- Creative and Practical Art(s) including Music lessons (with a qualified music teacher)
- Personal Development, Health & Physical Education
In addition, we offer our Primary students
- Strong Foundations in Numeracy and Literacy Skills
- Information Communication Technology (ICT)
- Religious and Values Education
- Student Support
- Social and Emotional Education – Friendly Schools Program, The Get Happier Project, What’s The Buzz
- Specialist Music Lessons
- Student Leadership, Peer Support, Buddy classes
In each year level literacy activities are taught up to three periods per day and numeracy up to two periods per day. The other subjects are taught in one or two period blocks across the learning week.
Pastoral Care lessons occur on a weekly basis. We are a Get Happier School and implement a variety of programs from Kindergarten through to Year 6. This approach enables us to recognise, develop, implement and sustain a methodology that supports our students’ unique social and emotional learning needs and helps to foster the prevention of bullying behaviours and learn how to make and keep better positive relationships.
Specialist teachers are employed across the Primary School to take classes for particular subjects. These include Music, Italian, Visual Art, Religious and Values Education, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, Science and Technology, ICT and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.
The students within the Primary School have daily access to excellent ICT resources such as Computers and iPads. The integration of ICT supports the development of the key skills: accessing, organising, applying, creating and communicating. These skills are necessary for success now and in the future.
Our students also enjoy a modern Library, superb sports grounds and well-equipped specialist facilities such as Art, Science and Technology and the Food Technology kitchen.
The Music co-curricular tuition program is open to all Primary age students. Students younger than Year 4 are encouraged to begin with piano, violin or the drums.
