It is Cobram Anglican Grammar School's job to prepare every child including our youngest to meet the challenges of a changing world with courage and confidence. This journey will not end for 13 years and for the first seven years - we will assist, guide and support you and your child providing you with all the necessary information, answering all of your questions and most of all being there every day for you to contact, your child to ask questions and navigate this journey together.
Our transition to school for Foundation through the 'School Readiness Program' ensures that all students that attend Cobram Anglican Grammar School are developing the spiritual, physical, mental and social capabilities to assist them to reach their full potential and become lifelong learners.
A word that is regularly used is ‘belonging’. A child’s perspective of belonging is often referred to as ‘inclusion’ by adults. When a child has a sense of belonging, they experience warm and responsive relationships, they thrive because they feel safe, nurtured and valued.
At Cobram Anglican Grammar School we see every child as a unique individual with different needs and aspirations, and we understand that the support that helps one child may not work for another. With careful attention and planning our Foundation to Year 6 students are supported, included and encouraged with a strong sense of belonging as they move through the Junior School.
Foundation to Year 6 Junior School | Teaching and Learning
Junior School is based around an integrated curriculum that stimulates creativity and curiosity. Our students are offered an enriching, caring and inclusive educational environment. Strategies to promote independence, collaboration, adaptability, resilience, creativity, optimism and responsibility are embedded in everyday learning.
From Foundation (Prep), we establish a strong sense of belonging and cooperation that exists both in the classroom and in the playground. This is of critical importance in creating a harmonious and cohesive environment which translates to a culture of learning.
