Avon Valley Gazette - - EDUCATION MATTERS -

LOWER Chit­ter­ing in­de­pen­dent school Im­mac­u­late Heart Col­lege wel­comed Year 6 stu­dents for the first time this year.

The small but grow­ing school now caters for kinder­garten to Year 6 stu­dents and of­fers a weekly playgroup at Lower Chit­ter­ing Hall.

The build­ing con­tract was re­cently signed for stage one of Im­mac­u­late Heart Col­lege’s per­ma­nent pri­mary school build­ing, which will in­clude four large class­rooms, an un­der­cover area, ablu­tion block and stor­age room.

Con­struc­tion will com­mence in mid-March and once ready the fa­cil­i­ties will host mid­dle to se­nior pri­mary classes.

Work has also started on Im­mac­u­late Heart Col­lege’s two na­ture-based play ar­eas.

Along with high qual­ity fa­cil­i­ties, the school aims to pro­vide an ex­cep­tional learn­ing pro­gram for all stu­dents.

“Im­mac­u­late Heart Col­lege pro­motes a high aca­demic stan­dard with at­ten­tion to lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy skills as well as spe­cial­ity ar­eas such as mod­ern Greek, tra­di­tional Greek dance and pi­ano tu­ition,” prin­ci­pal Dr An­gela Evan­geli­nou-Yian­nakis said.

“We have a strong Catholic ethos, with re­li­gious sis­ters teach­ing the Catholic faith and a virtues pro­gram daily.”
