Our Curriculum

Students access a balanced curriculum of Arts, English, Mathematics, Health, Society and the Environment, Science/Technology and PE and has specialist teachers in Health and PE, Performing Arts, and Spanish . All classrooms have interactive whiteboards. ICT and learning how to learn skills are explicitly taught. Support for students to achieve learning success is a focus with specialist teachers providing intervention when required.

We utilise the pedagogy of Accelerated Literacy and staff engage in a range of professional development activities to ensure that teaching and learning is quality, contemporary and enables student success. Parent support for learning and extra curriculum activities is strong. We encourage a strong community through positive student interactions, the development of friendships and a striving for shared goals.

 

We provide a stimulating environment where learning is expected, exciting and challenging. Inclusive student voice supports students to be environmentally and socially aware. Many students also participate in a range of programs which complement their learning, including team sports, choir and other purposeful action teams. These encourage and develop active compassionate, life long learners, and encourage students to be responsible citizens, confident of their capacity to make a difference. Gym
