Years 5 and 6

Junior School

Nudgee College's Junior School provides boys with an invaluable introduction to the Nudgee College culture and academic processes, in a nurturing environment which meets the specific needs of Year 5 and 6 students.

Our core subjects include Religious Education, English, Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) and Science, in addition to specialist subjects in the fields of Health and Physical Education, Japanese and the Arts (Music and Visual Arts).

Teachers in the Junior School integrate a variety of technologies and modern teaching practices to engage the boys in quality learning, including:

  • Flipped Learning education videos filmed by the Junior School teachers themselves
  • Year level Google sites, which provide not only an incredible resource for students, but also a window into the classroom for parents as to what your son is learning
  • The use of various Google digital platforms, which allows students to engage in collaborative learning

Every boy in the Junior School  is supported by dedicated teaching and support staff, as well as Year 12 Big Brothers who mentor our youngest members of the College. The Year 5 and 6s often form a strong bond with their Senior role models as they have someone to go to for advice, to share a laugh with in PC, and to cheer them on at Inter-house Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics carnivals. It is these bonds, along with the early introduction to Nudgee College life, which allows the Junior School boys to strive across their eight year journey at the College.
