Welcome to Jacaranda College & Pre-Primary where we believe that learning and education go far beyond a mere “A” on a school report. Our children’s success is built on a strong sense of who they are, what they can achieve and what it feels like to be part of a happy and focused school.
If you find your way to Jacaranda College & Pre-Primary, you are a seeker – a seeker of independence, of equality, of dignity, of diversity, of development, of growth, and of education appropriate for the “NOW” generation.
If you hope to find a school where excellence is anticipated and expected, and where it is defined as supporting each child in his or her efforts to do their very best, as well as a community where the partnership between school and family is a core element and an expected resource, you have steered in the right direction. Ours is an educational community offering exceptional academics in a caring, family oriented environment. We value each individual in a supportive community, seeking challenge, opportunity, balance and holistic development for all our children. For us school, from pre-primary to high school, is about change and growth. It is about inspiration as well as perspiration.
Our education focus is underpinned by educational research. It is knowledge- and skill-based, developmentally age-appropriate and child-centred. We are committed to providing high quality rounded education based on a wide spectrum of academic, sporting and cultural activities.
We greatly value the part that parents play in the education of their own children and recognise the work they have already done in teaching their children as their first educators. We seek to continuously strengthen this partnership between home and school.
We believe that our greatest obligation is to prepare children to perform well and effectively in the world that they will be living and working in, and not the world we have known, or prefer to have.
The child is at the centre of everything we do!
Every child has the right to feel valued, to feel intelligent, to feel beautiful, to feel inspired. Every child should carry a badge of victory and hope.
Children must be able to celebrate new beginnings while respecting and learning from the past. They should experience the unity and harmony that can be found in diversity. They should choose their own path in life. They should learn the fulfillment of taking responsibility and accountability for the consequences of their choices and enjoy the hope for new encounters and experiences.
Welcome to Jacaranda College & Pre-Primary where we believe that growth, learning and education go far beyond a mere “A” on a school report.
