NEGS Junior School is a co-educational junior school for students from Transition through to Year 6. Located on a spacious and beautiful campus in the New England High Country, we provide outstanding education outcomes underpinned by Christian values in a family orientated school community.

At NEGS Junior School we offer a broad, challenging, academic curriculum, that is integrated with pastoral care initiatives, and sporting and cultural pursuits. Within the context of a family, Christian environment, we promote a fun atmosphere where boys and girls are engaged, motivated and self-directed in their learning.

We offer a comprehensive wellbeing program that draws heavily on the principles of positive psychology. We access the resources available from the Live Life Well @ School program, as well as the work of Martin Seligman and mental resilience. We work to develop each student’s sense of self-efficacy and develop the character traits that enable this, such as hard work, self-control, grit and adaptive thinking.
