Junior School

At Peninsula Grammar, our Junior School program is one of discovery, and like all discovery, that is inspired by a curiosity. It’s a time when our teaching staff encourage each child to develop their own curiosity and love of learning, helping them enjoy success on their learning journey.

Discovering Me — Prep to Year 4

Our ‘Discovering Me’ program has a strong 21st-Century curriculum focused on the growth of every individual to ensure each child experiences success on their learning journey. The Junior School Curriculum is developed to promote curiosity, collaboration, creativity and a love of learning. Through engaging inquiry-based learning experiences our children learn, grow and flourish.

Becoming Me — Year 5 and Year 6

Our unique Middle School program, ‘Becoming Me’, provides a supportive link between the Junior School and Pre Senior School (Year 9). The unique needs of young adolescent students at this age are identified and catered for in a tailored program designed explicitly to support students through a time of exceptional physical, social and emotional growth.

Inquiry Learning

Our Inquiry Learning is developed through the principles of Kath Murdoch. Students are introduced to an idea, topic or issue that provides them with opportunities for them to wonder. This drives their interest to understand the world around them. Throughout their learning, students continue to question, reflect and make connections to construct their own meaning. Inquiry Learning enables students to direct their own learning whilst being guided by their teacher. Students have opportunities to reflect on their learning to think of ways to make a difference. Each Inquiry Learning unit has cross-curriculum connections to ensure deeper understanding.

Wellbeing program

The wellbeing program in the early years aims to build the social and emotional literacy in children. Evidence-based programs have been selected to help teach children how to identify and manage their feelings whilst also learning important social skills so they can learn to get along with others.

The case for co-education

Peninsula Grammar is proudly co-educational. We fervently believe that young boys and girls learning together, helps them best challenge, question, and critique the norms and beliefs that society instils. Learning from and with each other, our young people understand that diversity, equality, inclusion and acceptance are fundamental to understanding the role they must live out as citizens of the world, regardless of gender, of race or ethnicity.
