Our curriculum values

The fundamental goal of teaching is to develop independent, self-directed, life-long learners. Learners should then possess and utilise:   

  • a wide knowledge and creativity
  • deep understandings and higher-order thinking
  • good articulation and communication skills
  • reflective and self-directed learning
  • active investigation and problem-solving skills                               
  • an ability to work cooperatively in our interdependent world                                   

It should enable children to:

  • adapt to changing conditions
  • seek and process information
  • communicate effectively
  • be willing to accept responsibility
  • be aware of the benefits of good health
  • show intrinsic motivation and positive learning attitudes
  • develop an inquiring mind
  • have a smooth transition into secondary schooling

Children learn best in an atmosphere of care and concern where they are able to experience success. They must be confident to express themselves and participate in the education process. Teachers prepare stimulating and exciting programs where children can experience concepts in a relevant way. Teachers continuously evaluate the progress of individual students and maintain a classroom environment which is highly motivating. Parents are encouraged to have an input into the process and be supportive of the school and teachers. A positive partnership with parents is valued in our school.

Our curriculum practice

In April 2013 we underwent a departmental Teaching and Learning Audit. This audit focused on the following 8 principles:

  1. An explicit improvement agenda
  2. Data analysis
  3. A culture that promotes learning
  4. Targeted use of school resources
  5. An expert teaching team
  6. Systematic curriculum delivery
  7. Differentiated learning
  8. Effective teaching practices.

Information about this audit report can be found in the parent factsheet (PDF, 264KB). Our curriculum framework is based on the Dimensions of Teaching and Learning.​

We follow the Australian Curriculum, and are implementing the current C2C (Curriculum To The Classroom) Curriculum.Dimensions of Teaching and Learning.JPG​​​​​
