Junior Years P to 6


jyartGlennie Junior Years, is where your daughter’s education journey begins. These are critical years that will form the basis of your daughter’s future development and growth both physically and socially. The Junior Years curriculum has been specifically designed for this and provides a strong basis for enhancing literacy, numeracy and thinking skills.

We want our students to experience a progressive and enlightening educational program, that nurtures them in the fellowship of Christian care and develops their skills on the foundation of trust, integrity and social responsibility.
