Sholem Aleichem College is a Jewish primary school that aims to foster a love of learning, Jewish culture, history, traditions and festivities in a secular educational setting. We offer a rich and diverse general curriculum that focuses on literacy and numeracy, the arts, health and physical education. At the heart of the College is the study of Yiddish language and culture, Hebrew, Jewish history, traditions and customs, and literature. Our goal is for each student to reach her or his potential by providing an exceptional education program and outstanding opportunities for development through performing and creative arts, sciences and sport. Sholem aims to achieve excellence in learning and teaching by providing a secure educational environment, and by encouraging a harmonious working relationship involving the student, teacher and parent. The College aims to build a sense of belonging for its students by promoting cooperation, mutual respect and the ideas of freedom, peace and social justice. At Sholem we recognise each child as an individual with unique abilities and talents to be nurtured. We believe in the education of the whole person: socially, spiritually, creatively and ethically, to raise contributing members and fulfilled members of the local and global community. Fundamental to our mission is highlighted in our school motto "Values for a Lifetime", which is integral in all aspects of curriculum, daily school life and community spirit.
