The famous African proverb, “it takes a village to raise a child,” rings true to the Unity College Junior School. We take this time to thank our students and families, the staff and wider community for the partnerships we have developed and continue to nurture as we grow together.
The Junior School is a hive of activities and opportunities throughout the year. This is evident as the excitement mounts for the festivities of Book Week. There is no better sound than that of children playing and engaging at lunch time, enjoying the wide-open spaces with a Literacy focus. Activities range from giant cross words, door displays, bookmaking in the newly refurbished library, radical readers, photo walls, scavenger hunts, illustration stations and a variety of challenges and competitions. The celebrations will conclude on Friday with a whole Junior School Parade to mark the love of books, reading and a good excuse for dressing up!
There are many great highlights of the school year and this is only one of them. Countless activities embrace the importance of our community connections. These include:
- The Year 4 students buddy relationships with the Concordia Kindy Students, visiting both the Kindy and College at various times throughout the year
- The Reception students receiving Bibles from the year 12 students
- Our Buddy class and volunteer reading program
- The Year 2 Christmas float in the Murray Bridge Pageant
- Student representatives at NAIDOC celebrations and the Bridge Walk, as well as the ANZAC Day Dawn Services
- The Year 5 Cows Create Careers connections, just to name a few.
Unity College Junior School is more than a sub school, we are a community. A place to feel engaged, a place to feel nurtured, a place to feel inspired, a place to learn and a place to belong. Thank you for being part of our community.
