Primary school education

A child's learning begins at age 6 years, however, it does exist in most primary schools relevant to ours “kindergartens” – a child qualifies for such a class even at age 4 years. These classes are optional, however, they help to acquire basic skills that are later used in normal education.

Primary school includes 6 years of study, the student finishes it at the age of 18 years 12. The year is divided into four semesters, the beginning of the school year is in January. Students have two-week breaks between semesters.

At the end of the school year, the summer break is longer and amounts to 1,5 month.

Primary education in Australia takes the form of thematic blocks – that is, there are no separate teaching subjects here.

Very often, teachers use the method of self-development of topics by students – of course with the help of a teacher, which is supposed to help in acquiring the ability to independently acquire knowledge and analyze information.

Interestingly, there are no grades in primary education, and also no homework – knowledge is transferred and consolidated only during school lessons.

At the end of the year, students receive a written report detailing the student's progress. If the results are very good and the student is ahead of the class program, can be upgraded to an older class. This is done at the request of the teacher.
