The Avondale Preschool Programme that is used by our teachers is based on principles that align with, the UK Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the Australian Early Years Framework for teaching with a curriculum that is inquiry, play-based and with a strong focus on developing early Literacy and Numeracy skills. Junior School, Primary School and Secondary School, we follow the Australian Curriculum.
We cater for children from 3 years to 14 years of age.
We have approximately 350 boys and girls from all over the world, enrolled across the entire School.
All parents receive a weekly e-newsletter from the School detailing current events and activities. There are also numerous parents’ evenings, information events and talks hosted by the School to enable a close relationship between parents and academic staff. Parents are always welcome to contact their child’s class teacher with regards to any questions they may have. Parent / teacher interviews are conducted throughout the year and School reports are distributed to parents at the conclusion of both Semester 1 and Semester 2 of each year. The Parents’ Association emails a weekly Newsletter to all parents detailing events and relevant parent information.
We offer a personal schooling environment with attractive teacher to child ratios allowing us to truly get to know your child. Class sizes are small. In the Preschool, the teacher/child ratio is 1:8 and all Preschool classes have assistant teachers. In the Junior School, the teacher/child ration is 1:11 with the addition in each class of an assistant teacher who focuses on supporting children with Literacy and Mathematics skills. In the Primary School, the teacher/child ratio is 1:24, however, most class sizes are considerably smaller then the official ratio.
We would be delighted to accept your child and welcome children at any stage of our school year.
Our recruitment criteria is based upon the quality of teachers rather than nationality. We have teachers from Australia, UK, Singapore, New Zealand and a number of other nationalities.
