Primary Curriculum

Good curriculum is the lifeblood of learning, as it helps to direct and guide the natural curiosity that children have. At Mid North Christian College, schooling is divided into three areas that reflect the growth and development of the students.

Junior Schooling – Foundation to Year 6

Junior schooling is a time to build upon the natural curiosity and enthusiasm that children have. Your child’s early years build a platform on which the rest of his or her education stands.

At Mid North Christian College we seek to prepare children spiritually, academically, socially, emotionally and physically for their future challenges. Features of junior schooling include the following:
  • Two hour daily literacy blocks with an emphasis on:
    • Jolly phonics
    • Guided reading
    • Daily writing 
  • One hour daily numeracy blocks with an emphasis on:
    • Mental computation
    • Developing maths fundamentals through concrete materials, mathematical skills and real life applications 
  • Christian Life programmes
  • Specialist Physical Education programmes
  • Early Intervention programmes in Literacy (including MiniLit and MultiLit), Numeracy and Coordination (Funtastics programme)
  • Intentional Science conceptual development from F to 6 (with upper primary access to secondary laboratories) in preparation for secondary school
  • Art/Music/Drama at all year levels
  • German as our Language Other Than English (LOTE)
  • History/Geography with Resource-Based Learning
  • ICT integration across Learning Areas
  • Social and Emotional Learning as part of the KidsMatter framework
  • Weekly Chapel/Assemblies – led by students
  • Auskick & Milo Cricket opportunities
  • Wider collaboration with local schools through annual SAPSASA and Festival of Music Choir events
  • Active After Hours School Sport community opportunities
