Junior Years Learning Environments

Imagine open, collaborative spaces, where primary school girls in Prep and Years 1 – 4 can work together, fostering a sense of community and belonging to their work, each other and their school.

OUR PRIMARY SCHOOL learning environments

MORRIS HALL

Within the leafy surrounds of South Yarra, our beautiful Morris Hall campus is home for our Prep – Year 4 girls.

Extending the immediate experience at Morris Hall is the outstanding landscape of the city of Melbourne. Museums, galleries, parks and theatres are within walking distance or a short tram ride.

We believe that an education for life takes our girls exploring well beyond their classroom environment.

 

LOCATION

Melbourne Girls Grammar Junior Years
100 Caroline Street, South Yarra

Our Prep – Year 4 primary school campus in South Yarra is conveniently located for families within the Toorak, Prahran, Richmond, Southbank, South Melbourne, Port Melbourne and Docklands areas.

It is easily accessible via Citylink and public transport, with plenty of parking available.

LEARNING STUDIOS

The junior primary school learning studios have been architecturally designed to take advantage of natural light and to provide comfortable gathering spaces where girls can collaborate and create.

The flexible spaces also support personalised study, integrating a range of learning technologies for girls to explore their passions and pursue these interests within a secure, positive environment.

The setting at Morris Hall supports and promotes a deep respect for each other and for our environment.

CENTRE FOR INNOVATION AND CREATIVITY

With a focus on the future, we established a Centre for Innovation and Creativity within our Junior Years campus.

Within the Centre, girls are offered practical, hands-on experiences to provoke critical thinking and extend their investigation of the world they live and learn in.

OUTDOOR ZONED LEARNING

Our girls may choose to learn and play in the Kitchen Garden, climb and swing on the Adventure Playground, play soccer on the oval, relax on the Peaceful Patio or immerse themselves in dramatic play in our Imagination Zone.

During these times, the girls are supervised by a consistent team of educators who are outside with them every day, guiding and nurturing their development as they learn and play together.

Belonging At Melbourne Girls Grammar

The need to belong is something we all have in common. At Melbourne Girls Grammar, we believe one’s sense of belonging emerges from the connections we make.

We strive to create a community calendar and schedule of events that enables connections between families and the School to flourish.

It is my pleasure to welcome you and your family to Morris Hall, the Junior Years campus at Melbourne Girls Grammar.

We are a community that embraces its diversity and seeks to offer rich and varied opportunities for all types of girls to pursue their passions and interests.

Our Parents Association works closely with the School to encourage interaction and connection. Families are invited to actively participate in many and varied ways, from community breakfasts to informal gatherings.

Melbourne Girls Grammar continues to prioritise its electronic communication with families and members of the School community. We provide all parents, students and staff access to eVI, our Learning Management System and Parent portal. For easy and fast mobile access our eVI app can be downloaded. The app is available from both iTunes and Google Play and allows parents quick access and real-time notifications to the School news, calendar, timetables and is a way to order lunch orders on the go.
