Curriculum

We have a strong focus on creating a caring and supportive learning environment. This means that all students are given the opportunity to achieve success through our education programs. Our teachers spend time getting to know each student to create a teaching and learning program that meets their individual needs. The curriculum we offer is developmental in the sense that it acknowledges that individuals learn at different rates and in different ways.

In today’s fast paced, frequently changing world we believe it is imperative for children to develop resilience. Our students are encouraged to be active participants in their learning and to develop strategies throughout their schooling that will enable them to develop resilience to change. That is, students are given the opportunity to explore and develop strategies, including being prepared to take measured risk and to learn from failures, that will enable them to be socially competent, ethically aware and active citizens in the wider community. Our school programs include (but are not limited to):

  • A strong focus on creating and maintaining an Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) rich learning environment.
