Welcome to Mulgrave's Junior School, where we set the foundation for excellence.
In the Junior School (Grades 1-5), students enjoy individual care and and environment that inspires a deep passion for learning. The transdisciplinary themes of the IB Primary Years Programme fosters the development of learners who are caring, communicative, inquiring, adventurous, balanced, thoughtful, principled, reflective, open minded, and knowledgeable. Our aim is not only to develop a strong academic foundation, but also to tap into the natural interest children have in the world that surrounds them.
Our student-led, teacher-directed model encourages children to make connections with one another, with their physical environment, and with the knowledge and ideas that fill their minds. Through questioning and discussion, students are given many opportunities to construct their own meaning, explore many possibilities and develop an authentic context for learning.
