CHAC Primary consists of 14 classes from Prep to Year 6, with two classes each for year level from Prep to Year 6. In January 2015, Years 3 to 6 moved into their brand new, state-of-the-art Upper Primary Centre, completing the new Primary Precinct for Prep to Year 6 students, with purpose-built learning areas, including adventure playgrounds, a Performance Art studio, and multi-purpose indoor/outdoor spaces.
Primary teachers and the Director of Primary work with a team of specialist teachers to deliver a balanced curriculum where the children are encouraged and taught to think, explore and create.
Our Primary is a learning community where the students experience a sense of belonging through acceptance, co-operation and responsibility. It is our goal as teachers to encourage growth in each student's concept of his or her personal potential and to actively encourage him or her to strive to reach their individual potential.
In our classrooms, differentiated learning experiences are organised for students based on ability levels and specific needs across literacy and numeracy areas. Small group work and mixed groups are also utilised to support the development of the whole child. Critical thinking strategies are embedded across the key learning areas.
Our Primary students have access to Secondary facilities such as the Design and Tech Centre, Music, Art and Drama rooms, and the Research Centre. Specialist teachers teach the students in the areas of Health and Physical Education, Japanese, and Performance Arts.
Primary students are provided with the opportunity to participate in clubs and in a number of competitions, e.g. Natural Maths, World of Trivia (General Knowledge), Debating, and ICAS Competitions in Mathematics, English and Science.
Significant efforts are made to create a connected and integrated curriculum that provides opportunities for students to explore their learning in a variety of situations and forms. Students are welcomed into a caring, friendly environment. Students learn to be responsible for themselves, develop skills that allow them to think independently and participate in a range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities that assist in the holistic development of the child.
