The curriculum is divided into eight different LEARNING AREAS.
Within most of the learning areas there are sub-areas that are referred to as CONTEXTS, then within each of the contexts we have SUBJECTS.
The Western Australian Curriculum is for students in Pre Primary to Year 10. Students within Kindy participate in many of these learning areas within the Kindy Curriculum, as well as other guides such as the Early Years Learning Framework and the National Quality Standard through a variety of age-appropriate methods of instruction, including play-based learning.
Our low numbers of secondary students mean that although a wide range of ‘options’ are not possible, all secondary students have the opportunity to participate in all required learning areas, within small classes where we have the ability to cater to the range of needs and interests of our students. Small groupings also mean that our secondary students are able to participate in a large number of excursions, incursions and camps throughout the year.
