Teaching & Learning

We use the Australian Curriculum

We provide a rich and diverse curriculum in the classroom setting and also with the following special focus areas.

The Australian Curriculum is the core curriculum document used in public schools across South Australia.

The subject areas are: English, Mathematics, Arts, Technologies, Humanities and Social Sciences (History, Geography, Business and Economics), Health and Physical Education, Italian and Science. The learning areas form the foundation of the curriculum framework but in the broadest sense, curriculum encompasses everything that students engage with at school.
