Year 3 and 4

Shining as Individuals

As students grow in self-confidence, they start to trust their instincts, understanding what they like and don’t like and start to focus on their interests. Through this, they develop friendships with like-minded peers and seek knowledge to feed their curiosity.

Creative Problem Solvers

Students develop independent inquiry skills and start to see problems as opportunities. Through our designated STEAM Makerspace, students encounter a range of interesting challenges like robotics, coding, engineering, electronics, designing, making and inventing.

Specialist Learning Programs

St Hilda’s specialist learning programs are taught by a specialist teacher who is not the classroom teacher. Specialist areas have a JK to Year 12 focus with a Head of Department who resides in the Senior School so that our students are well prepared when they reach Senior School.

Music

Playing a musical instrument uses all areas of the brain. At St Hilda’s, music starts in Junior Kindergarten. Courses include our Primo Strings Program for Pre Primary to Year 4 and Choral Program for Years 3 to 6, along with many cocurricular opportunities.

The skills learned in music assist all other academic, physical and emotional development.

Powerful Presenters

This new program for students in Pre-primary to Year 6 will challenge and empower all learners to become extraordinary leaders and impactful speakers. It aims to teach young students the skills to express themselves clearly, confidently and authentically who will connect with others, inspire, lead and effect positive change in the community.

The program will build confidence and develop communication and resilience skills through listening, oral presentation, choral speaking, music, movement and role play. Having strong public speaking skills is a skill everyone benefits from throughout their whole life.

The program will include:

  • Verbal & Non verbal Communication Skills – ( e.g. eye contact, tone of voice, body language, listening,)
  • Strategies to manage fear and anxiety during public speaking and performances.
  • Resilience skills – to take risks, be out of their comfort zone when presenting to others
  • To listen with an open mind
  • Persuasive skills
