About Primary at SCAS

Primary School at SCAS provides a safe and supportive learning environment where students are exposed to a variety of traditional and non-traditional subjects, with emphasis placed on the basic skills of literacy and numeracy.

Our curriculum is based on the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA), which replaced the Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards NSW (BOSTES) on 1 January 2017.

The Primary School is split into four Stages as follows:

  1. Early Stage 1 – Kindergarten
  2. Stage 1 – Years 1 and 2
  3. Stage 2 – Years 3 and 4
  4. Stage 3 – Years 5 and 6

Each Stage has six key learning areas (KLAs) as follows:

In Primary School, students will also study:

  • German (Years 1-2)
  • Japanese (Years 3-6)
  • Christian Studies (Years K-6)

St Columba places particular emphasis on enriching student learning through an interdisciplinary approach to Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Our modern Primary classrooms are fitted with interactive whiteboards or large interactive TVs, plus each year group has access to a set of Chromebooks, Laptops, Macbook Airs or iPads.

Our co-curricular Program also offers students the opportunity to participate in Sport, Chess, Public Speaking, Robotics Minecraft, Choir, Band, Drama, Dance, and more. 

Spiritually, Crusaders is a Christian development group catering to those students who wish to explore the Bible and issues of Christian discipleship in a relaxed way, plus we also hold Chapel Services on a weekly basis.
