Prep – Year 2
The very early Primary Years are crucial for the development of a young person’s social, emotional and intellectual growth. From Prep to Year 2 is a time when students are learning many of the skills that form the building blocks for future learning.
At Alphington Grammar School, these first three years of formal schooling ensure that our students are proficient in the basics, whilst being encouraged to grow and develop beyond that which is comfortable and familiar.
They spend much of their time in the Junior Years building on the north side of Old Heidelberg Road. This environment is familiar and self-contained. However there is also opportunity for them to engage in learning within the main campus area when they access the Education Resource Centre (library) and utilise the grounds for Physical Education and Music.
Along with their classroom teacher our Prep to Year 2 students also have specialists teachers in Greek, Physical Education, Art and Music.
Our goal within these years is to help our students to build the foundations for future learning whilst also nurturing their creativity, confidence and resilience. Our students develop into confident, resilient young individuals ready to tackle the demands of the more challenging stages of the learning journey.
