Learning

In Eblana, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child, challenge them to reach their potential, and encourage them to become confident decision-makers who are prepared to take risks and explore independence.

During these vital five years from Foundation to Year 4, our students are supported and guided through a broad range of learning opportunities. With a primary focus on laying solid foundations in literacy and numeracy our Teaching and Learning program is designed to inspire learning, encourage curiosity, questioning and age-appropriate risk taking. In support, the Campus follows the RULER program of monitoring and articulating social and emotional intelligences.

“We aim to nurture each child’s growth and sense of wellbeing at every stage of their development; socially, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. We celebrate all that is unique in each individual and view each student as a person of strength, curiosity, creativity and intelligence; all with enormous potential.”

Led by a classroom teacher, our students are also mentored by as many as nine specialist teachers. Varied teaching styles and expertise create an inspiring environment that stimulates wide-ranging perspectives, flexibility and greater opportunities for connectedness. On arriving at Mentone Grammar each child is appointed to one of eight Houses for life. House spirit and belonging are integral to our wonderful community feel in Eblana and the wider Mentone Campus.

Further to the intensive Key Learning Areas of Literacy and Numeracy, our program includes a strong Science and Environmental program, Humanities, Technologies, Language and Spiritual programs. All Eblana students study Chinese language and culture.

Complementing the academic program is a vibrant Arts program, which immerses our students in the joys of music, theatre, drama and the visual arts. Students have many opportunities to perform and display their artistic talents at Eblana’s regular assemblies, concerts and at whole-school events.

Sport and healthy activities are an embedded part of Mentone Grammar’s culture. All Eblana students have the opportunity to develop their physical skills and participate in House events, team sports and fun sports days.

Developing leadership skills is also a key characteristic of life in Eblana. All students are encouraged to be classroom and campus leaders, public speakers and active community service participants. Many opportunities exist for students to explore these valuable lifelong skills.

We invite you to visit Eblana and see our student in action.
