Community, friendship and new beginnings



The Junior School curriculum is designed to build upon the foundational skills developed in the Preparatory Program and give every student the best possible start to full-time schooling. Carinya Tamworth and Carinya Gunnedah Junior School both have outstanding classroom facilities, with air-conditioned classrooms, electronic smartboards, easy access to computers and a modern, well equipped Library and Resource Centre.

Mastering the fundamental skills of Numeracy and Literacy is a priority in Junior School, along with laying the foundations of a positive and purposeful approach to all learning and extra-curricular activities. The "flagship" of the curriculum is the subject called Core Studies. It is an integration of a number of Key Learning Areas that examines living in God's world. All subjects demonstrate the lordship of Christ over all that can be studied, however, Core Studies brings this truth to bear on a range of topics from the Board of Studies syllabuses.

Those joining the school are readily and warmly accepted into their relevant peer group by students already familiar with the expectations of the school. Children new to the school quickly adapt to their new environment and benefit from the “peer to peer” induction process which takes place so naturally between children.
