Year 5 at Woodleigh School. A great time to join

Year 5 is a busy year at Woodleigh. It’s here that we add a second stream of students – bringing new energy and ideas – and it’s also here that we set students on their journey through Woodleigh’s unique ‘Homestead’ Program. 

But what is Homestead? Homestead is a home-away-from-home for students that bridges the academic and pastoral elements of education. It is a place where students are known and valued, where they have the opportunity to lead and succeed, and where individually-tailored learning programs and a vibrant curriculum work to get the most from every student. 

At Woodleigh, strong core literacy and numeracy programs are complemented by an extensive range of co-curricular Sports, Arts, Activity, Camp, LOTE and Cultural Programs. This wide range of programs and real-world experiences mean that Year 5 and 6 students at Woodleigh discover and follow their passions while growing in a culture of mutual respect, cultural freedom and inclusion. 

Camp and cultural experiences see our students travel far and wide. Wherever they go, our students explore new environments and cultures together; building friendships, resilience, resourcefulness, and gaining invaluable life experience.

Back at school, our Year 5 & 6 students come together regularly with students at the Senior Campus for cross-campus and peer-teaching activities, including whole-school musicales, cultural days, festivals, sports and excursions. Students get to know their way around the Senior Campus, and by the time they arrive for their first day of Year 7, they are confident and comfortable. As a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years and Middle Years Programmes, there is academic continuity from Year 6 to Year 7, smoothing the transition to Secondary education. 

When the first day of Year 7 arrives, our students are ready to hit the ground running.
