What makes the Avalon Private Schools unique?
Avalon Private School is a dynamic, progressive future-focused Pre- and Primary School where we are committed to prepare our students for a new era and a changing world.
Our main focus is the child and what is best for our students. We aim to make education more personal with smaller class groups and close, positive and enthusiastic interaction between teacher and student. We encourage hands-on learning, discovery through play, working together and project-based learning.
Our teachers are dynamic, friendly and supportive and are committed to promote self-confidence, independence and self-assurance in our students from a very young age. They provide the highest quality education in a fun, nurturing and stimulating learning environment, enabling learners to work at their own pace and to their own strengths.
From Primary School age, technology is used to further support and enhance the learning experience with adaptive learning programs and Apps, that adjust to each student’s level. These programs also support teachers as it gives real time feedback on learner progress.
We encourage and help our students to find their inner inventor, creator, artist and mathematician and extend our curriculum from the Foundation Phase onwards with incorporation of Science, Technology, Coding and Robotics on top of the Core Subjects of Mathematics and Languages.
Appropriate conduct is maintained through positive reinforcement and students are encouraged to develop respect and understanding to the needs and rights of others.
We offer workshops in Coding, Robotics, early Engineering and Science to students as young as 7.
