Message from the Dean of Junior School
Canterbury College’s Junior School offers students a supportive and stimulating environment to assist in their development and growth.
Canterbury maintains an academic focus, concentrating on building confidence and ensuring students’ future social, emotional and educational success.
Each child’s progress is mapped to ensure developmentally appropriate and academically rigorous programs are provided, and an extensive range of computers and information technology is accessible.
High standards of behaviour, courtesy and honesty are expected from the children. The College atmosphere is founded upon good relationships and respect, support and cooperation through modelling the College’s values everyday ensuring the children enjoy a safe and caring environment.
Canterbury education also includes camps, Blast Days (Spiritual Retreat) and excursions. Specialised programs such as Life Education, our Engine Room, Smiling Minds and You Can Do It! teach the children the personal skills they need to be successful and happy, not only at school, but throughout their lives.
Junior School at Canterbury College provides students with secure and enjoyable school years while equipping them with the foundational skills to be effective and successful learners during their lives.
