About the Junior School
Penrith Anglican College’s Junior School consists of Years 3 to 6. There are 3 classes in each of the Junior School Grades and each class is made up of 30 students.
As with our Prep School, Junior School classrooms are centrally located around year appropriate learning centres. Literacy and numeracy groups are ability based and follow the NSW Board of Studies Curricula. The College endeavours to foster an appreciation of the creative arts, consequently students in Years 3 – 6 learn a musical instrument as part of the Music program. Students are also taught Visual Arts and are offered a range of co-curricular activities. As well as creative arts, students participate in regular physical education lessons and attend the Junior School swimming, cross-country and athletics carnivals.
Throughout the Junior School students are given the opportunity to support our Prep students in a ‘buddy’ system. Year 5 students are paired with Year 1 to assist with reading and every Year 6 student is paired with a kindergarten student to support them as they commence school.
Students in the Junior School are given the opportunity to become School Leaders in a variety of positions including: Captains, Vice Captains and House Captains.
