Supervisor's Message

I am delighted to welcome you to our website. I hope that as you navigate your way through each section you find all of the information you are looking for and gain an insight into our philosophy of education. Victoria Educational Organisation has a long-standing reputation for providing a world class education to young students. We care passionately about each child and their needs are our first priority. We feel our responsibility is to provide a learning environment that promotes a sense of security, familiarity, and excellence in teaching. It is also our goal to nurture and develop every child that comes through our doors, and prepare them for their journey as a life-long learner.
Supervisor Message
We offer an exciting curriculum that draws upon contemporary research and best practice; aimed at engaging and challenging our students’ thinking. Our hands-on, inquiry-based curriculum is comprehensive, provides a broader world perspective, promotes student-led inquiry and instills what we consider to be paramount; the joy of learning. All of our kindergarten campuses are authorised International Baccalaureate World Schools; leading our students in their own inquiry process to becoming knowledgeable, principled, and open-minded thinkers. We are also elated to have very high literacy rates by the time our children are ready to move on to primary school. We attest this to our language rich, immersive classrooms for all learners, as well as the Columbia University, Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP) which we deliver at each kindergarten campus in our Lower and Upper classes. We are also working with Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education, to develop thinking routines designed to encourage empathy and systems thinking, as well as to promote transdisciplinary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) skills and knowledge in our early years settings.
Our highly qualified and dedicated teaching staff have excellent knowledge of the early years, and receive on-going training that helps support their roles and responsibilities in the classroom. We proudly offer our innovative curriculum in either a bilingual or trilingual immersion setting. Each classroom has a native speaking teacher for each language delivered. We have a one teacher-one language policy within our organisation which provides our students the opportunity to communicate in different ways and develop bilingual or trilingual skills, academic excellence, and positive cross-cultural and personal competencies.

We strongly believe in the importance of teachers, parents, and administrators collaborating and communicating openly and frequently. We have a strong sense of community and family throughout our whole organisation and believe that education is a shared responsibility between school and home. It is a strong partnership that we are proud to have built together over the last five decades.

Please explore our website for further details about our organisation or contact our Principals at the individual campuses to learn more. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you to Victoria Educational Organisation.
