Lower Primary

In the Lower Primary we seek to:

  • open young minds to the joys of learning
  • ensure children feel secure and confident when facing new challenges
  • foster individual talents and meet individual needs through providing learner-support
  • develop strong work habits
  • develop positive social interactions and awareness of the needs and aspirations of others

Beginning school at the age of 5, children start St Mark’s in either Year 0 or Year 1, depending on their birthday.  The Lower Primary syndicate encompasses classes from Years 0 to 4.
