In 2023 we introduced 2 new specialised areas:

  • New Digital Technologies and STEM 

Ms Spencer delivers a specialised Digital Technologies while Mr Lewis facilitates the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) discovery sessions. Both lessons are delivered weekly in each classroom, across all year levels. They have planned a range of exciting, innovative and engaging lessons for our students. We also invested in 3D printers, coding devices and a range of other resources, including our in-house Digitech consultant, Mr Coby.

  • Wellbeing - School Wide Positive Behaviour (SWPBS)

Ms Sanderson, our wellbeing coordinator has implemented a school-wide positive behaviour support, an evidence-based framework for Victorian government schools for preventing and responding to student behaviour. It aims to create a positive school climate, a culture of student competence and an open, responsive management system for all school community members.

Performing Arts - Music in Schools

Our school was also chosen to be part of the Music in Schools Program over the next two-years. Madame Baque and Madame Breimeyer will work with expert music teachers to improve our teaching and learning of music at our school. We will have coaches come out to the school and work within classrooms and there will also be professional development that our staff will attend.

Numeracy - Peter Sullivan

We are continuing to work with Peter Sullivan around his approach to teaching mathematics. He worked with our staff on our first curriculum day to see what simple maths games can be used as quick assessment. He will also be coming out to our school to work in the classroom by modelling lessons and providing feedback over the year.

Literacy - Victorian Young Writers Program

We have been accepted to participate in the Victorian Young Writers Program in May this year.  This exciting program includes:

  • Free writing workshops with children's authors to support high-ability students at your school

  • Ongoing support for both teachers and students post-workshop

  • Carefully curated book pack of high-quality texts for our school library.

Extension – Literacy and Numeracy

Throughout the year, a selected team of teachers will be working with a range of students to provide extension lessons. Students will be chosen based on our schools’ data.

French Enrichment Program

In this program, the students learn the Victorian Curriculum, which is enhanced with a lesson in French every day.  At CJC, we have a passion for multilingual learning.

Staying safe online

In our modern world, our children are exposed to and have access to such a broad range of content with the ability to share with others, whilst exploring the vast world wide web. We all have a responsibility to ensure this ability to engage in these spaces and platforms is monitored, managed, and done safely, respectfully and within the appropriate guidelines.


At school, we ask staff to be actively checking their student’s activity in these spaces. Our IT Technician team have created a controlled space for students to work within, and children are given e-safety workshops each term to support their understanding and engagement with technology and the internet.


At home, we stress that you actively manage the use of devices, know what your child is accessing and what to do if an issue arises whilst your child is online.

Our external providers offer an array of activities before and after school and during school holidays to accomodate busy parents, but also to enrich the children's education.

From TeamKids" outstanding childcare to Ujeb's Hebrew program, to French activities, such as cooling, drama, karate, ukulele, art, chess, to sports programs in soccer, footy, tennis, basketball, to private music programs and choir, there is something for everyone.

Student Wellbeing

The wellbeing of our students is paramount to us. Our students are supported in a variety of ways, both socially and emotionally under the leadership of our Student Wellbeing Coordinator and her team.


These areas of support include:

  • Our Student Wellbeing Team, who collaborate to ensure the wellbeing of our students is always our primary focus. 

  • Our LADIT (Let’s All Do It Together) Program runs in all classes at the beginning of the year, with the purpose of building a sense of community within and between classes.

  • A Restorative Practices approach is used across the school to help students build empathy and understanding of and for each other. 


The school can also engage external experts to support your child if required, including having access to:

  • Psychological and Speech Therapy services via the DET.

  • Counselling through Oz Child Family Services.




Teaching our children a second language from a young age is a gift that will allow them to flourish throughout their lives. One of our bilingual specialist teachers, Vincent Berraud, has written an article that aims at helping parents raise bilingual children, by offering tips and ideas that can be practiced at home.
