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
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.

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.
Outside School Hours Care
During the term breaks, JY girls are invited
to attend the After the Bell Holiday Program. Information regarding enrolment for this program is available on their website.
BEFORE SCHOOL CARE
Our MGGS educators supervise girls arriving from 8.00am each morning. Should you need to drop your daughter at the School prior to 8.00am, you may access the Before Care Program, which begins at 7.00am. Girls attending before school care will be escorted to their studios by OSHC educators.
AFTER SCHOOL CARE
After the bell also provides an After School Care Program between the hours of 3.30pm and 6.00pm each school day. Our MGGS educators supervise girls after school from 3.30pm-4.00pm. Any girls who are not collected by 4.00pm will be escorted to after school care by our staff. Information regarding enrolment for this program is available on their website.
