An Early Quality Start Makes all the Difference-A Unique & Customised Approach

Great relationships form the foundation for great learning at our school. Our Ready for School Program begins to build the important relationships amongst kids, teachers & parents that shape this exciting journey.

Our program is unique and dynamic. It starts early & is comprehensive in the range of learning experiences it offers. It is customised for each child through its Ready for School support pack. Another feature is the early involvement of the school's Buddy Leadership Team, where each pre-school child is allocated an older buddy for the duration of the program and into the next year. Our proven record of success for children and their families, and the positive feedback received, show this is a highly valued, innovative & popular program.

Our program taps into the on-going curiosity, love of learning and individual capacities that young children bring to the school experience-elements that are highly valued & nurtured at our school through our quality teaching & learning practices. It showcases for kids & their families the genuine community spirit and sense of collaboration & team-work that our school is so well known for, as well as its forward-thinking approach to meaningful, inclusive & engaged learning in the 21st century.

Welcome to Lewisham. You'll notice the difference.
