Curriculum and Educational Programs
Our school’s focus on each individual ensures comprehensive and stimulating educational programs are offered to all students. Currently the Preparatory Years encompasses Kindergarten (3 - 4 ½ year olds) to Year 6 (11-12 year olds). Within the Preparatory Years, learning programs are framed and delivered to reflect differing developmental stages of the students. Our Head of Preparatory Years works closely with teaching staff to develop and implement learning programs that are reflective of current education trends and quality instruction.
Supported by the Dean of Early Years, specialised learning practices in Kindergarten to Year 2 target the beginning of students’ educational journey to build a strong platform for the years ahead.
Our curriculum is organised around the key learning areas nominated by the Australian Curriculum. It is enhanced by other programs to make the learning experience meaningful, stimulating and linked to other knowledge, attitudes and skills.
Key subject areas include:
- Humanities and Social Sciences
- A Language other than English - French
- Digital and Design Technologies
- Health and Personal Development
- Physical Education
- The Arts
- Religious Education
Our curriculum, in alignment with the Australian Curriculum, is responsive to the needs of modern learners and caters to individual needs. A skilled and expert Learning Enhancement department supports teachers to provide differentiated and individualised programs to cater to these individual needs, whether through learning support or extension and enrichment activities.
