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 designed 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. Our staff align their practices to a researched Pedagogical Framework and a clear Curriculum Framework to guide their teaching and learning. Our Dean of Early Years and Head of Professional Practice liaise closely with teachers to investigate outcomes data and coaching procedures to ensure our practice has a clear improvement agenda. This Teaching and Learning cycle provides clear direction and purpose around the educational programs delivered to our students.
Our curriculum is organised around the key learning areas nominated by the Australian Curriculum. It is enhanced by other interest based 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 Centre team, supports teachers to provide differentiated and individualised programs to cater to these individual needs, whether through learning support or extension and enrichment activities.
