It is the magical moments that happen between the teachers and students each day that ultimately have the greatest impact on student learning outcomes.

Our Junior School educators connect with each and every student, developing, challenging and mentoring them to achieve their absolute best every day.

Junior School Overview

Our personalised approach allows our teachers to develop a comprehensive understanding of each student's strengths, challenges, and learning successes, providing tailored support to help them reach their full potential.

Our teaching and learning approach is guided by the Victorian Curriculum and delivered using the Primary Years Program (PYP) framework of the International Baccalaureate® (IB)

This unique blend of inquiry and play-based learning supports the development of internationally-minded, knowledgeable young people who strive to make a positive impact on the world.
To further support our Junior School students, Mentone Girls’ Grammar provides before and after-school care through Camp Australia.

Student Wellbeing

We are committed to the holistic development of every student at Mentone Girls’ Grammar, and that includes their mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing. Our dedicated team of Student Wellbeing Specialists work closely with students and their teachers to provide tailored support, advice and guidance.

Junior School Students Technology



We embrace the use of technology to enhance student learning. From a young age, students are introduced to technology to build their confidence and independence, while also learning about ethical and responsible technology use.

Our teachers integrate technology into their lessons, providing students with opportunities to develop digital literacy skills and engage with educational tools and resources. Through this approach, we aim to prepare our students for a digital future and equip them with the necessary skills to succeed in an ever-evolving technological landscape.
