In the Junior School your daughter develops her first love of learning. She builds a solid foundation in areas of social and emotional wellbeing, and academic knowledge and skills.

The Early years are about curiosity, confidence, persistence, imagination, problem solving and investigating. It’s in her first years that she discovers school is a wonderful place to be.

As students move through the Junior School there is a focus trying new things and independence of mind and actions is encouraged. Students identify their personal qualities and achievements as well as learning to express their emotions appropriately.

In the final years of Junior School, it is all about developing good character through leadership, building independence, encouraging initiative, and embracing the Korowa values of courage, respect, integrity and service.

We strive to provide the best possible learning environment. Our class sizes enable our teachers to develop a strong relationship with your daughter and provide individual support.

Our staff work in close partnership with you to see your daughter flourish at school and beyond. Every teacher in the Junior School is responsible for student wellbeing, and all staff play a role in ensuring each student’s development and success.

What sets us apart is the wide range of opportunities available for young girls. Your daughter can learn an instrument; take part in Dance, Drama and the School production and learn how to start a simple business. She can participate in inter-school sport, concerts and the Chess Club. Trips and Tours are a highlight for many girls, as they take their learning outside the classroom and apply it in practical settings.

Korowa’s extension program, Mitre, introduces this group to Philosophy and higher-level Mathematics.

We encourage our girls to engage with the world through a number of opportunities, challenging them to learn and experience success across a range of endeavours.

Junior SchoolScience Laboratory

We are delighted to announce the opening of a new purpose-built Junior School Science Laboratory in 2022. This new space allows for the expansion of STEAM programs for students from ELC through to Year 6. Flexible in its design, this space facilitates experiential and investigative learning through the use of specialised equipment and maker space facilities.

Science provides students with the opportunity to learn about the world around them, to make real world connections and to gain a better understanding of how and why things work. At Korowa, we recognise the importance of introducing students to science at an early age, as it allows them to develop a keen interest and appreciation of science, often leading to ongoing studies and future opportunities.

The new space allows students to learn specific processes in Science, and also have the opportunity to explore robotics, STEAM and culinary practises. I am sure this will inspire our girls to become inquiring minded citizens – future chemists, astronauts and engineers”
– Head of Junior School, Miss Jo Barker

This space has been designed to not only allow us to expand our science offering but also includes kitchen facilities to support learning through our Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden and our indigenous garden spaces for ongoing experimentation, analysis of collected data and cooking of produce.

Facilitating the delivery of an extensive science / STEAM program as outlined in the Australian Curriculum, this space supports teaching and learning in an engaging and interactive manner enabling individual, small group and whole class learning opportunities from ELC to Year 6.

We look forward to our students exploring the world of science in this new facility.
