JOHN PAUL INTERNATIONAL COLLEGE
PRIMARY PREPARATION PROGRAM
John Paul College is delighted to announce that from January 2004 we offer all students of non-English speaking backgrounds, aged from 9 to 12 years, an intensive ‘On Arrival’ program which is unique in Australia.
Specially qualified teachers with long experience in teaching young students will give expert intensive tuition in English as a second language, Science and Society and Maths to prepare children for entry into mainstream classes in grades 4, 5 & 6.
This ‘On Arrival’ program will acculturate students into the ethos of John Paul College which has a holistic approach to every aspect of learning. Student confidence will be enhanced as success is achieved in developing the essential learning skills that will prepare them to become independent thinkers and full participants as they enter mainstream classes.
The ‘On Arrival’ program has been established as part of John Paul International College and will consist of two ten week terms with a mid-course holiday break. Class sizes will average no more than 15 students in a specially resourced ESL classroom. Orientation to the local community and to life in Australia will be an integral part of this holistic educational environment.
Assessment of student success will be an on-going process. All students must satisfy the requirements of Stage 1 before progressing to Stage 2 and entry to John Paul College Primary Classes.
This has been popular with parents who have the opportunity to accompany their child for the duration of their studies in Australia on the new Guardian Visa program.
