Welcome from the Head of Junior School
The Junior School is a warm and welcoming Preschool to Year 4 campus where our students thrive. It is where friendships are formed and families are embraced into our community whilst the best foundations are laid for our students to flourish in their future learning and grow into caring, responsible and courageous citizens.
Lindisfarne’s progressive curriculum in the Junior School is rigorous but still allows time for curiosity, wonder and inspiration. As an Anglican school, it is important to us that our students develop both intellectually and spiritually. Every student at our Junior School enjoys a wealth of experiences that help to build their character whilst a strong moral compass is developed around the things our students are most passionate about.
Through the energy of our young students and the vivacity of our dedicated staff, our vibrant Junior School comes to life each and every day. It is a wonderful place to be. Come and see it for yourself.
Head of Junior School
Early Learning Centre
Our aim at Lindisfarne Preschool is to provide an environment that is caring, supportive, safe and nurturing, combined with learning experiences that stimulate and challenge each student’s strengths, needs and interests.
Our programs cater for individual needs encouraging children to work at their own pace and, most importantly, fostering each student’s unique ability in a positive way.
The Junior School understands that the foundations of a building are key to the longevity of the structure. The same principle is applied to the teaching and learning of our students in Kindergarten to Year 4.
At Lindisfarne, we realise that high potential learners must be identified and specific differentiated adjustments should be made in order to meet their unique needs. We include students in a range of co-curricular pursuits to develop their depth of skills and talents.
Further to this, our Learning Enrichment Coordinators offer rigorous programs, whilst collating an ongoing collection and analysis of data, to ensure Lindisfarne students are reaching their potential. This is then collaboratively discussed, when reviewing plans for our high potential learners, to ensure their cognitive potential and achievements are aligned.
We understand it is just as important for parents to know their child is happy and nurtured as it is to see them succeed academically.
The wellbeing approach we take in Junior School is one of nurturing and mindfulness, and we regularly communicate with parents and welcome their involvement in their child’s education and wellbeing.
The Junior School’s pastoral care programs highlight the importance of our school values of compassion, wisdom and respect. Staff guide our students through these values from the very beginning of their schooling journey ensuring everyone who enters Lindisfarne’s Junior School is welcomed and surrounded with care.
Our Junior School students learn about building and maintaining good mental health and wellbeing. This is not only via the curriculum but also through the sharing of the latest research, resources, opportunities and strategies to enable students to flourish.
Opportunities are provided to all students to participate in leadership responsibilities, offering our students the chance to excel and lead by example.
Music, Sport and our co-curricular program are important aspects of schooling at the Junior School.
The staff and students of Lindisfarne Anglican Grammar School acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our school is situated. We acknowledge the Minjungbal people of the Bundjalung Nation and pay our respects to Elders past and present. We extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who visit our school.
The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children and young people and expects all staff, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment.
