Junior School

Welcome to the Beach Drive Campus! Located on the oceanfront in heritage buildings, our Junior Kindergarten to Grade 5 classrooms are wonderful examples of the best of learning in action. This beautiful location is enhanced by the quality of our curricula, the passion of our teachers and the energy and involvement of our students. Having myself been a student at GNS along with my cousins and three sisters, I was delighted to send my three children here. Subsequently my daughter came to teach at GNS and has since enrolled her two girls in the school. We feel lucky to have such a strong connection to this amazing school through the generations!

At 'The Beach' our students are engaged in an enriched, values-based curriculum delivered by talented teachers with warmth, friendliness and expertise. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme provides a fabulous framework of inquiry to develop strong foundation skills that allows personalized learning to be at the forefront. Pastoral care is an important part of school life for Junior School learners as it allows all students to challenge themselves to be their very best in a safe and supportive environment. Beach Drive learners also enjoy canoe trips to Jimmy Chicken Island, daily physical activity, and specialist teachers in Mandarin, French, music, art, technology and PE.

No website can capture all that we do, so please come by and see our students in action. The magic of this campus is apparent from the moment one arrives!
