Teaching and learning

Middle / Upper Primary (3-6)

Years 3 – 6 builds on the foundations set in the early years of primary school.  As students move away from a more play-based environment, and a greater reliance on independence and self-management skills is needed, students experience a much wider learning program.

The middle and upper primary school program @GHPS continues to embed strong literacy and numeracy skills whilst expanding on the specialist subjects provided.  Students in years 3 – 6 will experience a more integrated curriculum as learning areas such as HASS and English, and maths and science complement each other well.

As part of the year 3 – 6 learning program, the following specialist subjects are provided in 2022.

  • STEM
  • French
  • Physical Education
  • Visual Arts
