Our Junior School
A Personalised Approach to Learning
At Tranby College, our students are at the heart of everything, and our approach to learning and wellbeing adapts to cater for their diverse and changing needs. We recognise that children can be competent, capable and resourceful learners. And, with the right environment, tools, guidance and learning methods, we can help increase their ability to learn throughout their lives. It is why our Personalised Learning approach is so important. It helps ensure we fulfil each child’s potential, setting them up for future success.
We believe that collaboration, co-operation and communication between parents, students and teachers is essential for the successful learning of all children. We encourage parents and guardians to actively participate in their child’s learning through in-class opportunities, parent evenings, three-way conferences, learning journeys, assessment portfolios and semester reports. Parents are also welcome to arrange time to meet with staff to discuss any issues or concerns.
Utilising a play-based environment that incorporates classroom routines and structures, our approach recognises each child as an individual, guiding their learning journey based on interests and needs.
Playful learning and researched-based programs are used to help meet benchmarks and expectations. Specialist teaching from Pre-primary (to Year 6) includes: Indonesian, Art, Music, and Physical Education.
In Year 4, students attend their first outdoor camp, building skills in self-resilience, problem-solving and independence.
A Breadth of Opportunities
Children in the Junior School are provided with extensive opportunities to develop their creative, intellectual, sporting, artistic and cultural talents. With regular activities across a range of learning areas, Tranby students are challenged by a breadth of experiences that stimulate their thinking, curiosity and imagination.
