Welcome from the Director of Primary Education
Welcome from the Director of Primary Education Mrs Rhonda Robson
St Andrew’s Junior School is a place where all students are known and valued, where a strong emphasis on quality teaching and learning spans from the very first days of Kindergarten to the final days of Year 6. Our city centre location has many advantages for parents and students alike, being easily accessible adjacent Town Hall. Students experience vibrancy both in and out of the classroom, with specially designed semi-open plan learning spaces and frequent city excursions that range from visits to the many galleries and museums at our doorstep, to expeditions through the historical precinct of The Rocks or outdoor discovery in the Botanical Gardens and Darling Harbour.
Class sizes are deliberately small and classrooms are well equipped with the latest learning technology.
We offer a range of opportunities for every student, with an intensive focus on best practice in teaching the fundamentals of Literacy and Numeracy. Specialist teachers and support staff deliver programs in Sport, Music, Drama, Science and Mandarin Chinese, as well as Outdoor Education (from Year 3 onwards). Christian Education and values of integrity, resilience and tolerance are folded into the framework of daily life. We share our rooftop playground with Gawura, a K-6 school within our school that caters specifically for Indigenous students.
