The K-6 department of DCS continues to strengthen and build upon a biblical foundation of teaching and learning experiences in order to grow just and morally founded young Christian men and women. While it goes without saying the fundamentals of Literacy and Numeracy are taught explicitly by highly trained teachers, students are also carefully and intentionally nurtured in the ways that Jesus taught his followers. Central to academic learning is the notion of service and care of others in all level of Primary school. ‘We’re all in this together’ instructs students to care for his fellow man regardless of indifference and walk beside those less fortunate than themselves.

With the exception of daily Mathematics lessons, classes are staged at Dubbo Christian School. Enhancement for students is offered via extra- curricular activities such as Musical tuition and also involvement in the Primary Band. The weekly LOTE lesson for Years 3-6 in Indonesian also exposes each student to enriched learning as well as the culture of Australia’s closest neighbours.

The concept of service is also nurtured in the Year 5/6 students through Sporting events and the Project Compassion program where all DCS Primary students support 2 young people in third world countries. Students hear and experience a little of what is like to be marginalised and the role of each individual in closing the gap for everyone.
