Preparing girls for lives of significance
Your girl’s learning journey begins in in our Junior School in Pre-Kindergarten where early learning needs are met by our experienced and caring team. Our focus is to guide your daughter’s development through every interaction to help shape her future. The moments that make up a student’s time in early schooling journey are countless. Moments of discovery, learning, friendships and connections. At PLC Armidale we allow every girl to be her authentic self.
PLC Armidale follows the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) Curricula across the Key Learning Areas of:
- Science and Technology
- Project Based Learning
- Creative Arts
- Christian Studies
- Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE)
- Languages (French)
Our Junior School classes have access to College iPads and interactive white boards ensuring our girls are engaged in their learning, collaborate and are prepared for a future of technological advances and innovation.
Class sets of iPads are used in early years, with students taking responsibility of their own iPads at Stage 3. Teachers integrate technology naturally in classroom activities to consolidate and extend curricular learning.
At PLC Armidale, we base Early Childhood education on the Reggio Emilia approach, actively involving girls in their own learning through play-based experiences. Outdoor games, sport, dance, gymnastics and learn to swim programs build on our students’ natural curiosity and love of movement to develop their gross motor skills.
PLC girls’ creativity and character is also nurtured through Music, French, Performing Arts, Christian Studies and a wide range of arts and crafts. Every student’s progress is followed and documented by our specialist Reggio Emilia educators.
