Curriculum

The school incorporates the Australian Curriculum within the curriculum framework first developed for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). This is the Education Department's blueprint for all schools in Victoria. Subjects taught are English, Mathematics, The Arts, Integrated Studies (covering Science, Technology and Studies of Society and Environment), Health and Physical Education.


The School's priority, as outlined by our Charter, is Student Connectedness - with school and each other. Literacy is taught through a multisensory approach which connects speech to print. Students learn through visual, auditory, oral and tactile ways which cater for all learning styles.


The classroom teacher covers most areas of the curriculum supported by specialist teachers of:

  • Visual Arts
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Science
  • French


Students have access to a number of support services, such as:

  • English as a Second Language
  • Welfare
  • Integration
  • Small group writing support
  • Small group maths support
  • 1:1 reading support
  • Maths extension groups
  • Bright Sparks - STEM program
  • GATEWAYS workshops

 

Communication between parents and the school is paramount. An Information Evening is held early in February to outline what you and your child can expect in regard to subjects, timetable, homework and so on. Parents receive formal, written reports in June and December. Parent/teacher meetings are held in mid-February, when parents can pass on information about their child, and in July to discuss the mid-year report. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher whenever they have concerns or questions.
