Our foundational education prepares students for the wonders & challenges they’ll face in life. Our unique Primary School education is based on principles of academic excellence, rich cultural curriculum, spiritual values & character development. An annual Shakespeare Festival is a highlight for all with its core academic skills. Students are taught within a caring, supporting environment of trust & stay with their class teachers for 2-3 years for stability and connection. A daily vegetarian lunch is also provided.
Our focused teaching, proven methodology & effective delivery of NSW’s curriculum has consistently placed us among top-ranking primary schools in Australia. The success of our program is seen in the result of happy, motivated children who see themselves as part of a community.
John Colet School is a multi-faith School, where spiritual and character development is an important aspect of our students’ development. The children are introduced to simple exercises in self-awareness and inner stillness. There are regular moments of quiet between lessons, and at the age of 10, the children can learn meditation. The aim is to give children a quiet sense of self assurance and confidence. Philosophy classes are conducted at all age levels, as open discussions addressing questions such as Who am I, How should I live my Life, What does it mean to be a good friend? Scripture classes draw on a range of traditions from East and West.
A wide range of clubs and activities are offered both within school hours and before and after school, including sailing, tennis, fencing, chess, music tuition, ensemble, yoga, classical and modern languages and gardening. Swimming lessons are provided during school time. All students learn choral singing and music notation. The children take part in all sorts of outside competitions – such as singing eisteddfods, inter-school debating or sport, or inter school chess championships. A full list of clubs and activities is on our website.
