When a student is enrolled into the Junior School we enrol a whole family. We invite and encourage families to walk closely with us in a partnership of learning for the children entrusted to our care.
We understand that students come to us with a wide range of talents, abilities and interests. Our aim is to give our students a rich range of experiences, building on their current skills and learning.
We believe that sound basic literacy and numeracy skills are the critical building blocks of learning, and we have an early intervention policy to provide the best possible foundation for future years.
Tatachilla Lutheran College is a community where we encourage our students to have care and concern for all other members. In the Junior School we introduce and nurture this culture. A social skills program is used across year levels, centred around the key skill of resilience. We would like our students to not only survive, but to thrive.
While the large majority of our students are taken in at Reception level, placements are offered as vacancies occur at other year levels.
