Students are supported in developing their creativity, enthusiasm, and love of learning. Guided by the Australian Curriculum and the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, our learning programs for each year are mapped to the developmental learning stages of our students. The essential skills of literacy and numeracy underpin our academic programs, and we focus on spending quality time on tasks to ensure student learning opportunities are maximised.
Developing language and literacy skills is central to all students’ learning. Students from Prep to Year 6 are immersed in daily literacy learning, where they experience a balanced approach to reading, writing, speaking and comprehension. As students’ confidence and understanding grow, language elements, including spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary, are gradually built on as they explore literature, literacy and language.
Teaching numeracy develops our students’ confidence and ability to reason and work mathematically and can connect Mathematics to other learning disciplines. They are taught to recognise the connections between the strands of Mathematical Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving, and Reasoning. Our teaching teams deliver a curriculum that encourages students to be creative users and communicators of Mathematics, giving them the skills to investigate, represent and interpret situations in their everyday lives.
We want our students to develop a lifelong curiosity about the natural and constructed world and understand how to seek scientific explanations for the phenomena around them. Our guided investigative learning approach allows students to engage in hands-on learning experiences that involve planning, designing, measuring, observing, evaluating procedures, examining evidence, and analysing data.
History and Social Science
Our History and Social Science programs encourage students to inquire about the past, and develop their curiosity and imagination for the future. Students gain an understanding of our history and the societies, events, movements and developments that have shaped humanity from earliest times. This understanding helps students appreciate how the world and its people have changed, as well as the significant continuities that exist to the present day.
