Junior School

The OFG educational approach captures and cultivates our youngest students’ wonder, curiosity and excitement as they commence school. Our balanced curriculum and positive learning environment builds the spiritual, social, physical and intellectual dimensions of each child, as they discover their passions and develop their identity.


We understand each child is unique and will learn and respond to different styles and approaches. Our teachers foster a genuine love of learning by preparing creative and innovative lessons with the needs of each student in mind. Our specialist sport, language, performing arts, creative arts and music teachers develop each child’s talents and passions across their areas of interest.

Kindergarten – Year 2

Kindergarten lays the important foundation for a child’s educational journey. Our teachers design stimulating, play-based academic experiences that develop creative and critical thinking cultivating lifelong learning.

Building a student’s literacy and numeracy skills is paramount during this stage and is supplemented with specialist subjects; music, drama, languages and art. STEM, the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, is introduced in Kindergarten to develop a student’s natural process of inquiry and innovation.

Meet some of OFG’s specialist teachers through our fun and educational OFG Creative Kids videos, designed to develop the skills and behaviours to help preschool children get ready for school.

Is your child ready to start school?

Starting school is a big milestone both for the child and their parents. There are many factors to consider and it is important to identify a broad range of skills and behaviours. Our School Readiness Activity Packs are designed to develop the skills and behaviours to help your little ones become school ready.

The Camino Program

The Camino Program, OFG’s Gifted & Talented Extension Program commences in Kindergarten with the early identification of students who will benefit from academic extension activities. From Kindergarten through to Year 4, these students are catered for through small groups that encourage questioning, imaginative thinking, investigation and reflection in areas such as writing, mathematics and science. From Year 5 the Camino Program is activated through dedicated extension classes where students encounter challenging learning experiences, both independently and in collaboration with like-minded peers.

Transitioning to Senior School

Year 5 entry provides a wonderful foundation and a seamless transition to OFG’s Senior School. Students in Years 5 and 6 experience a period of immense growth and development academically, physically, emotionally and socially. We understand that for many students, starting Senior School can be a difficult time as they adjust to a different structure, new friends and continue to develop their independence.
