St George College will be the first Christian Orthodox primary school (P-6) in Brisbane catering for 350 students dual stream when at full capacity. The school will provide students with a broad values-based education adhering to the Australian Curriculum. In addition to the key learning areas, Modern Greek Language will be taught as part of the co-curricular component.
The College’s holistic teaching environment will draw from the Christian Orthodox faith whilst focusing on:
- Age appropriate pedagogy for all year levels
- Strong literacy and numeracy foundations throughout Prep-6
- Age appropriate learning approaches
- Technology-rich stimuli
Our teaching and learning framework will encourage curiosity, collaboration and creativity and will feature core curriculum in:
- HASS (Human and Social Sciences)
- Digital Technologies
- Health & Physical Education
- The Arts including Music, Visual Art and Greek Dancing
- Modern Greek Language
- Orthodox Religion
There will also be a strong pastoral care and restorative environment operating throughout the school.
Collectively, we strive to develop the whole child within a positive and caring environment, where each child is affirmed and supported with Christian love.
We believe in fostering and modelling attitudes and values which will encourage students to make positive behaviour choices that are respectful and morally and socially acceptable. We value relationships, take responsibility for our behaviour, reflect on our actions and practise forgiveness and grace through restorative practices.
Everyone in the school community has a responsibility to foster quality interpersonal relationships amongst teachers, students, parents, support staff, priests and parish communities. St George College will endeavour to provide high-quality interpersonal relationships of care and support. Each member of the College community is both a provider and recipient of pastoral care.
