Community, friendship and new beginnings


The Junior School Curriculum meets all NSW Board of Studies requirements, with Kindergarten building on the good work carried out in Prep to give each student the best possible start to full time schooling in Kindergarten and Junior School. 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.

Carinya Tamworth Junior School (Kindy - Year 4) and Carinya Gunnedah (Kindy - Year 6) both have outstanding classroom facilities, with air-conditioned classrooms, electronic smartboards, easy access to computers and a modern, well equipped Library and Resource Centre.


Families whose children are enrolled in the Kindergarten Preparatory Program, and continue into Kindergarten the following year, are be eligible for a 50% rebate of the total Prep fees paid the year prior to Kindergarten. This rebate will be applied directly to the families' School Fees Account at the start of the Kindergarten school year to reduce the Total Annual Fees due for that year.


There are a number of options for you if you would like to find out more about what Carinya can offer your family.
