Learning model/curriculum

Our Primary curriculum offers an integrated program which encompasses all key learning areas and provides our students with a very solid platform to continue their education at the secondary level. The curriculum offered to our Kindergarten to Year 6 students follows the New South Wales Education Standards Authority syllabuses.

Our pedagogical approach to the student’s learning centres around the Cultures of Thinking Model which has as its basis the key principle that improving learning and collaboration can be achieved with our students by honing group and individual thinking processes. This curriculum model strives to meet all our students as learners and their individual needs. In their classrooms teachers strive to create cultures of thinking with the students. They use a variety of methods and routines, including making time for thinking, developing and using a language of thinking, making the classroom environment rich with the documents of thinking processes, and making their own thinking visible, to name a few.
