Programs

The school’s curriculum is formulated around the Victorian Essential Learning Standards.


In 2008 the school is progressively introducing Inquiry Learning across the school which will eventually embrace all components of VELS.


English/Literacy and Mathematics/Numeracy are at the forefront of learning at all levels of the school.


The Arts are used to enable students to gain a knowledge and understanding of the socio-cultural and physical world.


Learning Technologies support all areas of the school curriculum. Specialist teachers provide Japanese (LOTE), Learning Technologies, Visual Arts, Music and Physical Education.


In 2008 the school developed a new Multi Media Centre as a part of its new ‘e-learning strategy’. We also purchased banks of student 'Notebook computers'.


To support these curriculum areas, the following enrichment and special assistance programs are provided: Reading Recovery; Integration; Junior School Council; House System; Peer Leaders; Student of the Week; a school wide ‘You Can Do It!’ program; Instrumental Music and school Band; Camps and Excursions; Swimming and Interschool Sport; Health and Human Relationships; Developmental Learning; Parent Education and Religious Education (optional).

 

Some of the existing key organizational aspects are:

  • - Professional Learning Teams for teachers in Foundation, Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4 and Year 5 & 6.
  • - Promotion of  Team Teaching across the school
  • - This year, for organisational purposes, all classes are stand alone classes.
