Middle Years

A strong foundation in the Middle Years is essential.

The Middle Years of schooling is a crucial time in the development of children as they move from primary school into secondary school and beyond.

Providing a strong foundation with essential skills and knowledge in the middle years is essential to prepare children for the upcoming challenges that lie ahead. 

The Middle Years program at St Joseph's School Barmera focuses on the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of children. 

The curriculum is designed to provide an engaging and stimulating learning environment for students to develop their problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity and self-confidence.

Students can explore their interests and develop new skills through activities such as sports, music, art and drama and learn valuable life skills, such as communication, teamwork, cooperation and resilience.

Students also develop leadership skills, confidence and a sense of belonging through a range of leadership roles and programs.
