Grammar Primary Program
In Primary students are engaged in learning programs which are relevant, have continuity, promote active thinking and cater for individual differences.
Our teaching nurtures a sense of wonder with which we are all born. Through engaging, real life and personalised learning approaches, we help our students grow as; thinkers, problem solvers, collaborators, self-managers, communicators and researchers through our contemporary approaches to learning.
Our Primary School curriculum is planned collaboratively and delivered by individual class teachers covering the Australian Curriculum learning areas of; English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society and the Environment. In Years 3 – 6, Mathematics classes are formed around the needs of students to assist with differentiating the curriculum.
Our Primary School develops the solid foundation for all future learning and success to be built upon now and into the future.
Specialist subjects taught by specialist teachers further enhance the school program.
These subjects include Physical Education, Music, Speech and Drama, Art, Christian Studies and Languages (Years 4 – 6).
Languages taught are French and Japanese. These specialist subjects provide additional rich learning experiences for our students.

Chess tuition for Years 1 and 2, Speech and Choral Choirs in Year 3, Musical Strings program in Year 4, Concert Instrument instruction in Year 5 and Dance, Debating, Public Speaking and Surf Awareness initiatives in Year 6. These additions to Primary subject offerings ensure a unique and vibrant curriculum.
Primary teachers plan units of study which are designed to be engaging and develop critical and creative thinking skills with opportunities for real world problem solving.
BOOK A TOUR
I have been part of the Grammar family ever since Prep.
So many doors have been opened for me at Grammar, providing me so many magnificent opportunities to thrive. All throughout my time at Grammar I have been continuously encouraged by teachers to not only achieve, but to extend myself in all areas. One area I aspire to is our specialist lessons. These weekly opportunities stimulate our imaginations and provide motivation to pursue our unique talents. An area I am most passionate about is the subject of Visual Arts. I have been nurtured to further my love and mastery of the subject through the continued support of the specialist teachers in this area.

Each of us are truly blessed to teach, learn and play alongside such passionate, respectful and caring people every day at Grammar. To share each day with staff, students and their families in a school community built solidly on service above self and looking outwards to others is indeed humbling.
I am privileged to have worked at Sunshine Coast Grammar School since 1999. I enjoy working with like-minded people who are passionate about the education of young people. Sunshine Coast Grammar School provides students with the opportunities that will allow each individual to reach their true potential. I believe in a Grammar education so much, my son will spend his educational journey at Grammar.
Jeannie Baxter-Reid, Teacher and Parent
Our family relocated from Hong Kong to the Sunshine Coast five years ago. When looking for a suitable school we chose Sunshine Coast Grammar because of its reputation and balance for academic and sporting excellence. We fell in love with the grounds and superb facilities at the school. The boys are all involved heavily with the music program and finding friends and fitting in was made a lot easier by starting the school rugby program immediately. Through the boys sports and extra curricular activities they were quick to form friendships that will have a long and lasting impact beyond their time at Grammar.
My time at Grammar was instrumental in shaping who I am and being able to achieve my dreams today. Education delivered in a thoroughly supported environment by passionate and amazing teachers, have set my colleagues and I to be competitive in our respective fields. Further to which we were encouraged to develop skills and talents we enjoy, and to become well rounded individuals.
