Curriculum

The vision for our school is to have every student able to learn well. We are a student-focussed school: your child’s development and achievements are our sole reason for being here.

Our staff have High Expectations to:

  • Engage students in a developmental program of authentic and real-life learning experiences;

  • Prepare students for the structural, social and cultural changes brought about by the Primary to Secondary school transition.  This includes such items as academic rigour and specialist subjects.

  • Provide wide and varied subject choices where students are expected to investigate and plan while continuing to develop reading, writing and arithmetic skills.

We demonstrate this through:

  • Project-based real life learning which has been developed through collaborative planning and community involvement.

  • Problem-based real life learning.

  • Effective profiling of primary students, linking this to the high school setting.  Year 8 subjects are carefully structured to lead into the senior school curriculum.

Students working towards developing individual learning pathways that will lead to an exit strategy from the school.
