Kilvington Grammar School

Kilvington Grammar School

Ormond VIC, Melbourne Southern Suburbs & Western Port

Junior School (Prep-Year 6) Our Junior School is a place of rich and rewarding learning experiences where students’ needs, abilities and interests are placed at the centre of the curriculum, and differentiated programs and explicit teaching are designed to ensure children reach their academic, physical, social and emotional potential.

We set high expectations and strive to instil an enthusiasm for knowledge, a positive and brave ‘can do’ attitude when embracing challenges and a genuine love of learning. Our dedicated teachers ensure that each student feels connected, valued, engaged and challenged at all times.

   JUNIOR SCHOOL SUBJECTS

In upper primary, Performing Arts is broken down into choir, music and drama. Students also participate in a formal Sport program in Years 5 and 6. We also offer Mathematics and English Enrichment classes for eligible students.

A range of opportunities are available in our co-curricular program including Chess, Mindfulness, Coding and Design Time.

Transition to Year 7

To ensure a smooth transition from Year 6 to the Senior School, we have a range of activities designed to prepare students for the move to Year 7.

A Year 7 Parent Information Evening towards the end of the year is an introduction to the Student Wellbeing program in the Senior School and is a chance to begin building the relationship and connection with their Mentor and Dean of Wellbeing.

Year 6 students participate in an orientation program where they spend some time in single gender classes in preparation for the transition.

Year 7 students spend time with the Year 6 students to share their experiences and give them the opportunity to ask questions.

The Year 6 teachers also provide a detailed handover to the Year 7 teachers.

I’ve been at Kilvington since Year 2 and have made many memories that I cherish, however when the time came to move from Junior to Senior School I was more than a bit apprehensive. But the teachers eased us from Year 6 to Year7, always asking if there was anything that we thought would help. In fact, the whole Kilvington community made the transition so smooth and easy; it was ‘Year 6 today and Year 7 tomorrow’, with no fuss in between.
