What's Happening at Grammar

 

 

 

Based on the stages of adolescent development, we have created the following hubs based around the word “Step” to align with the respective development stages of children so that we can better cater for the wellbeing and academic needs.

 

PRIMARY SCHOOL:

Early Steps (Junior Kindy- Year 2)

This is a time where students begin their Geraldton Grammar School journey through our personalised, investigative, play based approach to early learning.  We cater for the interests and developmental needs of our youngest students, providing a solid foundation in early literacy, numeracy and inquiry skills. We aim to develop the social emotional skills and dispositions to set students on a path of life-long learning.

 

Step Forward (Year 3-6)

This is a time when students fine tune their investigative skills from their early years of learning in the form of Educational Research Projects.  Students personalise their learning by demonstrating their understanding of the subject and learned skills through their interests. This approach to learning empowers the students to choose topics they are genuinely interested in, set realistic timelines for projects, take responsibility for their learning, reflect on and self-assess their work and place an emphasis on the skills of research and presentation. Focus is on developing children who can think for themselves and others, who can create and imagine, who are strong in their literacy and numeracy, and who can navigate the challenges of the world with intrinsic motivation and a strength of character derived from a strong sense of self and resilience; to be emotionally intelligent, self-initiators, reflective of themselves and others, strong and articulate communicators with a realistic sense of themselves and others.

 

SECONDARY SCHOOL:

A 7/8 Hub called STEP IN

This is a time where student transition from Primary school and step into Secondary, build new friendships, have more movement around campus, enter the school perhaps for the first time,  manage homework and other commitments and get to sample an array of different subject areas with specialist teachers.

 

A 9/10 Hub called STEP UP

This is a time where students have to choose their possible path in life and have to step up in their academic studies as well as co-curricular activities. They have to make the decision to either choose an ATAR or General pathway and have to contemplate their future direction. They step up in their camp programs as they go on outward bound for the first time and build new friendships and learn how to become more resilient. 

 

A 11/12 Hub called STEP OUT  

This is a time that students step out and consider life after their formal schooling.  They will consider where they go to for further studies, which TAFE courses they may undertake and what they will do after school finishes.  Students as they get ready to step out, have to take full responsibility for their course choices and their studies and learn to sit external exams.  It is a time of the school ball and where life-long friendships are solidified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grammar student scores outstanding achievement

14 June 2016

Geraldton Grammar School student Eliza Singleton (16) received an outstanding achievement for her cultural performance at the Hanyu Qiao (Chinese speaking) competition in Adelaide over the weekend.

Representing Western Australia, Eliza was required to complete three tasks at the competition – a 3 minute speech in Chinese on what her Chinese dream is, a written test carried out in Chinese characters, and a cultural performance.

Although she is still awaiting her overall results, Eliza was given an Outstanding Achievement for her cultural performance – in which she sang in Chinese whilst performing a Chinese fan dance.

Eliza Singleton said the experience was amazing and that the trip to Adelaide over the weekend was incredible. “It all went so fast but it was a great experience. It ended up being really fun, even though I was really nervous,” said Ms Singleton.

Geraldton Grammar School Principal, Nick Johnstone, said Eliza’s achievements were remarkable given she’s only been speaking Chinese Mandarin for 3 years.

“Eliza was asked by Professor Chu from the University of Western Australia, to compete in the competition and so she set that goal for herself, worked hard and stay focused and the results speak for themselves. She has done herself and Geraldton Grammar School proud,” said Mr Johnstone.

Eliza’s love of the language came from participating in the school’s cultural exchange program to China last year and studying at Zhejang University during a camp this year.
