Specialist Subjects


Art is integral to our Junior School curriculum. Students in junior levels learn from their class teacher, while seniors receive specialized instruction from a dedicated art teacher. Art fosters creativity, self-expression, critical thinking, and fine motor skills, enhancing students’ educational journey.

Year 5 and 6 students in the Junior School Art Club created a magical mural for the central play area, adding vibrant colour and creativity for the whole community to enjoy.


Students in Year 1 to 6 learn Indonesian, balancing language and culture. Activities like games, stories, and music enhance linguistic and cultural skills, fostering cognitive development, communication, and global understanding.

During the Sumatran-themed Indonesia Day, students observe traditional dancers, participate in a Year 5 and 6 ‘angklung’ orchestra performance, and engage in activities like shadow puppet making and traditional dance workshops.


The Junior School Library is a vibrant hub for students from Prep to Year 6. Guided by the Teacher Librarian, students borrow books, enhance their reading and research skills, and cultivate a lifelong appreciation for literature.

Junior School students, from Prep to Year 6, eagerly participate in Book Week. They dress up as their favourite book characters, culminating in a joyous and colourful book parade.


Music is integral to our curriculum. Students from ELC to Year 6 participate in class music lessons, including choral work, theory, and learning instruments. Music enhances cognitive skills, memory, creativity, discipline, and teamwork—a universal language fostering expression and connection.

Every two years, the Junior School presents a musical that students work on throughout the year in their music classes. All students participate, regardless of their level of experience or talent, providing them with a new and enriching environment.

Physical Education

Physical education (PE) is essential in our curriculum. From Prep to Year 1, students participate in the Perceptual Motor Program (PMP) to develop motor skills. In Year 2 to Year 6, PE includes swimming, gymnastics, and games, teaching teamwork and promoting a healthy lifestyle.

The Huntingtower Ball Games Carnival, unique to our school, is a beloved House competition dating back to the 1970s and remains a perennial favourite among Junior School students.

Science & STEM

Our curriculum spans Prep to Year 6, covering biology, chemistry, physics, and earth and space sciences. STEM is integrated from Prep to Year 6, with Years 5 and 6 collaborating on real-world projects. These programs foster curiosity, inquiry skills, and prepare students for STEM careers.


At Huntingtower, we creatively integrate ICT into our curriculum, offering specialized Technologies classes. These classes teach specific skills and content, fostering critical thinking and digital literacy. ICT prepares students for a confident and responsible digital future.

Huntingtower would like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and emerging  and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
