About All Saints Grammar School
We are a co-educational school that caters for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. We are committed to ensuring that your child has every opportunity to grow with confidence and make the most of their individual gifts and talents through our diverse tailored programs and rich curriculum.
All Saints Grammar Pre-Kindy program began in 2010 in a classroom on the Primary Campus. In August 2013, we relocated to a purpose built centre adjacent to the Church, across the road from the Primary Campus. The children attending Pre-Kindy visit the Primary Campus for Library and Music lessons and visit the school Gym for PE lessons. Specialist Greek Teachers work in Pre-Kindy to deliver Greek language activities.
All Saints Grammar Pre-Kindy is working towards the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW outcomes of Early Stage One. There are two classes at Pre-Kindy, each with a fully qualified and trained Early Childhood Teacher and a Teacher’s Aid.
Children must be turning three before 31 May to be eligible for a position in the Pre-Kindy Program. Children can attend for two days (Monday, Tuesday), three days (Wednesday, Thursday, Friday) or five days (Monday to Friday) subject to the enrolment policy. The Pre-Kindy program has been designed to cater for children to attend two years prior to starting Kindergarten.
At All Saints Grammar, we understand that children learn in different ways and at varying paces. Every child has unique educational needs. We pride ourselves in creating differentiated learning programs that are tailored to meet the needs of every individual in the classroom. The ideal is to adapt learning activities that cater to students’ strengths but bring all of the students to the same learning objective. When students’ needs are being met, they become more engaged in the learning process and are motivated to reach their full academic potential.
During students’ early years of education at All Saints Grammar, the school will take a leadership role in the selection of a technology device to be used by the students. Using the same device will allow students to master the device’s potential and learn in a structured environment. In combination with existing school owned hardware, students will have exposure to a diversity of technology based learning experiences over multiple platforms both at school and at home. Our Integrating Technology program aims for students to realise and exploit the advantages of integrating technologies into everyday learning tasks.
In Years 5 and 6 the program is aimed at encouraging flexibility and greater self-discipline in order to prepare students for secondary school. This program provides our students with rich learning experiences and at the same time enables them to become familiar with the daily routines of secondary education. Special teaching programs are designed for children to participate in activities aimed at enrichment and acceleration, whilst catering for the student who needs support. This allows students of similar ability levels to enjoy the stimulation of each other’s company and to participate in activities aimed at their level. The curriculum is designed to ease the transition into secondary school without loss of momentum or focus.
The secondary years of education provide the foundation for a rich and rewarding life beyond the school gate. Our secondary campus, offers a broad and rigorous curriculum catering for a wide range of educational options that will put students on the path to achieving their career goals.
At All Saints Grammar we are committed to creating and sustaining an educational environment where:
- Teachers and students are engaged in meaningful, relevant student centred learning
- Teaching and learning practices are continuously evaluated and revised to ensure innovation and creativity
- Teaching and learning focuses on self-reflective and collaborative practices
- Teaching and learning enhances the skills of responsible digital citizens.
Our vision places significance on the development of the student in a holistic manner. Student engagement in the educational experience is an essential part of ensuring improvement in all areas of their lives. In order to promote engagement, the provision of quality learning opportunities is an imperative.
