The Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students. It identifies what all young people should learn as they progress through schooling and is the foundation for high quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students. In the units of work the seven general capabilities - literacy, numeracy, Information Communication Technology (ICT), critical and creative thinking, ethical behaviour, personal and social competence and intercultural understanding with the three cross-curriculum priorities - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia and sustainability are embedded where appropriate.
Curriculum at Sarina State School sees the implementation of the Australian Curriculum in all subject areas. Our HOC co-plans with teachers at several times during the semester to ensure that teachers are differentiating for the needs for gifted students, supporting students with diverse needs and ensuring that all work is fully aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
