Manor Lakes P-12 College has 970 students in the primary (P-6) years of schooling.
Our primary students are supported by a dedicated and innovative team of classroom and specialist teachers, along with Leading Teachers and Assistant Principals.
The staff facilitate a balanced curriculum and provide a rich, engaging student centred integrated curriculum with daily programs dedicated to English and numeracy development.
Our specialist programs consist of P.E, The Arts (Visual Art and Performing Arts), LOTE (Indonesian) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM).
The individual needs of students are catered for through a highly effective Program for Students with Disabilities as well as Levelled Literacy Intervention (LLI), and all our students have Individual Learning Plans (ILP’s) which consist of student learning goals.
Our student leadership structure incorporates Year 6 Primary School Captains and the Student Representative Council includes students from year Prep to year 6. This provides our students with the opportunity to empower them with a voice in school decision making processes.
Currently our year 3 and year 5 students have the opportunity to participate in camps. The year 3 students plan a 3 day camp at Lady Northcote YMCA and the year 5 students travel to Camp Wyuna YMCA (Queenscliff) for a 3 day camp.
In preparation for the long stay camps, the year 2 students have the opportunity to participate in a school organised “sleep over”.
A comprehensive kindergarten to prep transition program takes place at Manor Lakes College from the beginning of term 4. Our local feeder kindergartens and pre-school centres have the opportunity to visit our school to provide the opportunity to have pre-school children become familiar with the environment. A structured transition program takes place for students enrolled for the following year to support the students and families to have a seamless transition into school life.
Our Year 6 students also have the opportunity to participate in orientation events in preparation for their transition into year 7.
