Pathways is Holy Rosary School's co-ed pre-primary.

All our precious children may be in the same physical space, but each one of them is actively encouraged to seek their own pathway and reach their personal best.  We actively celebrate the fact that our Pathways children are afforded ongoing opportunities to find the educational pathway that most appeals to them.  They are consistently supported on their journey of exploration and discovery.  

Our children are individuals and are afforded access to a broad base of age-appropriate opportunities to develop and consolidate a wide range of core competencies, so they are deemed to be school-ready by the time they complete the Gr 00 curriculum.  They explore a wide selection of skills from gross-motor skills to fine-motor skills, perceptual to social skills; all the while ensuring their emotional compass is pointing them in the optimal direction.  They lead the way and we support and follow them along their path of choice.

Specialist activities during the school day

Music, drama, fine-motor skills, gross-motor skills, ball skills, creative movement, supervised 'waterplay' and science exploration are offered during the school day.
