Junior School

A time for your daughter to lay the foundations of good learning habits and life skills.

Your daughter will expand her horizons and embrace new and exciting challenges.

The Strathcona environment nurtures the pursuit of academic excellence, co-curricular involvement, leadership development and the community and social engagement that each girl chooses to pursue. Our aim is to afford girls the opportunity to try various activities so that each individual is able to recognise and develop her own interests and unique attributes. We take a personalised approach to learning and development to each of our students.
