FOUNDED in 1903 Highbury Preparatory School is the oldest school in the Upper Highway area, yet it is undeniably a school for and about the future. The school’s extensive history is palpable when you stroll through the 28-acre grounds dotted with trees and historic buildings. In November 2015 to honour the school’s journey “The Highburian Museum” opened its doors. This space will be part of the estate tour for the 2016 open day.

“A school is a human institution which must be flexible enough to change and meet the challenges of the current times while also having the strength to remain true to its ethos and values,” says Brendan Carroll, Highbury headmaster.
“Highbury has always believed in encouraging boys to develop holistically, including academics, sport, cultural and spiritual areas. It is a privilege to be in the business of moulding and releasing the potential in young lives.”

Highbury is about child-centred teaching and skills-based 21st-century learning. Open day visitors will witness classes in action and notice how boys need activity, competition, humour, a sense of ownership, longer playtimes, hands-on activities and specific boy themes. Boys love technology and the one-to-one iPad programme has proved effective through interactive learning.

Established in 2005 Weavers’ Nest, the co-educational pre-primary school, is on the Highbury estate. This bright and inviting environment caters for girls and boys in two Grade 000 and two Grade 00 classes, where dedicated teachers encourage a passion for discovery in a nurturing “nest” environment. - Supplied
