Year 6 is the final year of primary school and an exciting time as students can take a leadership role in our school. We work together with high schools to assist our Year 6 students to have a successful start to high school.

Year 6 students at Ainslie School focus on building towards becoming independent learners. They are encouraged to take ownership of their school and home learning and are given opportunities to apply their knowledge in different forms. They are given leadership opportunities as year 6 leaders of the school. These include assisting with the running and coordination of sports carnivals, multi-aged activities across the school and volunteering in the school canteen.
