The K-6 curriculum has been developed using the NSW Board of Studies Syllabus from each of the six Key Learning Areas - English, Mathematics, Human Society and Its Environment, Science and Technology, Creative Arts, and Personal Development, Health and Physical Education.
Many of the learning activities within each class teaching-learning programme, are integrated across the range of KLA's and often these KLA’s are linked thematically.
K-6 students also have regular specialist lessons in French, Music, Library and Christian Studies. All students participate in Chapel, Choir and Assembly programs, with extensive co-curricular opportunities also available in music, debating, creative thinking and chess.
IT is used to enhance class teaching-learning activities in all KLA’s and forms an integral part of the K-6 curriculum. Access is available for all students to a school-wide computer network from within each classroom, together with timetabled access for use of the School’s IT Laboratories.
Teachers in K-2 classes utilise a variety of reading schemes, with a particular focus on LEM Phonics, which is further developed through Stage 2 and 3 (Years 3-6). A Reading Net has been implemented to catch students who may need extra assistance a targeted Literacy Support program (overseen by the Resource teacher) is also implemented each year.
A variety of teaching styles is implemented to facilitate student learning at each stage, which is outworked through group and small group teaching, ability grouping for specific academic subjects and also class teachers using their particular talents across a range of classes, through a collegiate swap arrangement.
Student Portfolios and comprehensive Student Reports are provided to parents each semester and include detailed comments by teachers on student progress for each KLA, as well as identifying areas where further development is required.
