Junior school

A broad range of learning skills build independence, confidence and a positive attitude.

Junior school at Keysborough College

The Junior School caters for students in Year 7, 8 and 9, and provides a safe, supportive learning environment.

This setting allows for smaller learning communities and a more personalised approach to teaching.

Students and teachers form positive relationships and teachers acquire a better understanding of students’ needs.

Year 7 & 8 Foundational skills

A broad range of learning skills builds independence, confidence and a positive attitude.

We encourage and support students to achieve to their best, particularly in literacy and numeracy. We take particular care to cater for the diverse needs of Year 7 and Year 8 students.

Teachers gain a deep understanding of individual student’s learning needs and styles.

Advanced learning opportunities within subjects are provided through personalised programs tailored for each student and for gifted learners.

Year 9 Our relationship to a larger world

We help our Year 9 students to develop their study skills, unique interests and goals. During Year 9 we offer our students more control and greater subject choice.

The curriculum engages students in the world around them. They learn to explore, take responsibility, and use their initiative.

Becoming active in their communities is an important part of the program. It helps students to learn about and experience a much larger world.

Research and applied learning beyond the school involves the City Experience, ePen pals with students outside Australia, and sister school connections with China and Japan.
