Head's message

The Junior Preparatory is known as the Gateway to St Stithians College as it marks both the start of the exciting fifteen- year journey through Saints, and the beginning of formal education.  Our school offers a nurturing, co-ed environment for Grades RRR, RR, R, 1 and 2, after which our boys and girls move onto the Boys’ Preparatory and Girls’ Preparatory respectively. 

We are a proudly Methodist Christian School and our aim is to be a place of welcome and wonder for all who inhabit our space.  We trust our families will experience being a part of our Community of Belonging.  Values are important to us, and these are based on the nine Fruit of the Spirit as found in Galatians 5:22-23. We also cherish our Honour Code and Saints Character and nurture self-esteem in our little ones. 

Innovation and a child-centred approach are two key components of our curriculum which is aligned to international trends and best practice in education.   Our students are encouraged to achieve their personal best within the broader context of small group and class teaching.  We celebrate diversity in all its forms and provide opportunities for children to explore their interests and talents both during and after school.
The staff are a dedicated and professional team who share a passion for the education of young people.  We have several specialist teachers who are essential to our holistic offering of a spiritual, academic, sporting, and cultural education.

The natural beauty of our campus provides the perfect backdrop for a quality education for our children.   Learning is a personal expedition to discover hidden talents and new passions that give meaning and purpose to life.  We welcome One and All to become part of our St Stithians family.
