The Junior Years is where many of our students first experience the quality teaching and learning they can expect throughout their journey at St Andrew’s Catholic College.
The Junior Years offers a Catholic education for students aged Prep to Year 5, and is designed to meet the needs and requirements of children throughout these specific stages of development.
The Junior Years has four classes in each year level from Prep through to Year 5. Each year level has a designated Year Coordinator. Year Coordinators are responsible for ensuring consistency and uniformity across the four classes, supporting the teachers to work as a cohesive team, and fostering a caring and nurturing community atmosphere for our families for the duration of the academic year.
We are committed to helping each student to achieve their best in all areas of learning. The Junior Years strive to provide a holistic education where the academic, emotional and spiritual elements of a child’s development are equally valued.
We also celebrate together in the Junior Years. We celebrate Masses, liturgies, whole school activities, community events and weekly assemblies. The Junior Years believes it is important to celebrate the successes of our students and we love to acknowledge the effort our children are demonstrating in all areas of their life.
We look forward to welcoming you along to these events, and welcoming you and your family to be part of our wonderful community here at St Andrew’s Catholic College.
