Primary school at NWCS delivers a curriculum that is carefully designed to challenge students in meaningful and relevant ways while still being fun and engaging. Primary school is a vibrant, nurturing environment where children develop a love for learning. Programs, taught by highly dedicated and passionate staff, are innovative and up-to-date. Because our staff believe that all children are unique and full of potential, they present a curriculum that is practical in nature and caters for the many different learning styles, talents and abilities that children have, promoting a ‘growth mindset’.
Students in Primary school complete all basic subjects as listed for the Australian Curriculum: Maths, Science, English, History, Geography, LOTE (AUSLAN), Civics & Citizenship, Arts, Health & PE, Technology.
In the Primary school a specialist sports teacher is employed to give our students a rich variety in their physical education. This includes athletics, swimming and team sports.
In Primary school we are focussed on establishing strong literacy and numeracy skills as well as helping students develop effective social skills. Students are provided with opportunities to be curious and creative, to think critically, to work collaboratively and to develop an attitude of thinking beyond themselves.
On a regular basis, students have the opportunity to visit the library to borrow books, participating in praise and worship services during Chapel, and enjoy participating in private music lessons.
North West Christian School promotes a holistic approach to education, encouraging students to develop their talents and abilities in a range of areas such as outdoor education, music tuition (violin & instruments), sports representation, community service programs, chapel and outreach programs, Bible study groups, school gardens, team sport opportunities, excursions and much more.
Students have access to a range of technology options which enhance their learning. All students have access to the school's state of the art interactive TVs, as well as the school iPads and MacBook sets.
Staff recognise using technology is a highly valued skill that students need to acquire in preparing them for life beyond schooling.
