Junior School

The Geelong College Junior School, at Campbell House, is a dynamic community for students from Prep to Year 3. Students are encouraged to be curious in their learning, to ask questions and explore answers through a range of experiences based on the world-renowned Reggio Emilia approach to learning.

Explore year level
When children first enter the Junior School, they learn the language of learning, and explore what productive learning feels, sounds and looks like. Children discuss problems, ask questions and learn how to learn. This culture of thinking and learning comes to life when the children explore ideas and themes that expand their knowledge of the world.

Learning conferences for teachers and families are led by students, offering the opportunity for students to show their thinking and explain their learning. These conferences help to deepen students' level of understanding about themselves, and help families gain a real insight into the changes and development of their child. Our approach to educating young minds harnesses natural curiosity, developing strong communication and a lifelong love of learning.
