Prep to Year 6
At Alphington Grammar, we believe the Primary Years are integral to building solid foundations in literacy and numeracy, as well as a sense of wonder about learning that will help our students become lifelong learners.
Students within the Primary Years, are encouraged to explore their talents and achieve to the best of their abilities. Our structured program with its emphasis on literacy and numeracy skills, is well supported by a stimulating program across other subject areas. This ensures our students are provided with a strong and inspiring range of learning experiences.
In reference to our Hellenic background, Greek as the second language is taught to all Primary students. Language classes are streamed to accommodate all levels of understanding and extend those students who possess a greater level of proficiency. With many students coming from a non – Hellenic background, our program delivers the benefits of learning a second language to all our Primary students – without the expectation of prior knowledge.
Smaller than standard class sizes in our Primary Years provides enhanced teacher responsiveness to individual student needs, and helps to develop the strong community bond that is so integral to the fabric of Alphington Grammar School.
