The Junior School is distinct in nature and layout, catering specifically for the physical, social, emotional and academic needs of our R-5 students.
Recently completed new Year 5 classrooms and an additional multi-purpose learning area have provided Year 5 students with a wonderful learning environment which captures the magnificent views across Golden Grove. The learning spaces are bright and colourful, incorporating the latest technologies and a large covered deck for break-out activities.
The Shared Facilities is a centrally-located hub between Pedare Christian College, Gleeson College and Golden Grove High School. It offers a broad range of opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities to achieve excellent teaching and learning outcomes for students.
Pedare students only go to the Shared Facilities in a Pedare class with a Pedare teacher. The Shared Facilities and the other schools are otherwise out of bounds. Each school has its own identity, ethos, traditions, manner of operation and facilities, but also has access to:
The Trade Training Centre is primarily used for delivery of courses within the discipline of Design and Technology at Year 10, Stage 1 (Year 11) and Stage 2 (Year 12).
There is potential for Year 10 students to study Electrotechnology Certificate 1, which provides for the four basic TAFE competencies within the discipline of Electronics. This is offered as part of the Design and Technology curriculum.
At Stage 1 (Year 11) students may choose Electrotechnology, a two semester course with a one week work placement. Selection into this course is dependent on available spaces. At Stage 2 (Year 12) a cross-campus SACE course is offered in Electronics as part of the Design and Technology curriculum.
In addition to these offerings, students may elect to study Electrotechnology one day per week at a nominated TAFE campus. Enrolment in these courses is arranged by the Pedare Director of Senior Studies and Pathways.
Also available through Pedare is study within the Advanced Technology Project. This project involves students from Year 8 to Year 12 who wish to experience Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing with an engineering emphasis. This course is delivered through the Design and Technology curriculum.
