Teaching & Learning
The curriculum of the school is based around eight learning areas – English, Mathematics, Science, Studies of Society and Environment, Technology and Enterprise, Health and Physical Education and the Arts. Teaching and learning programs are developed, implemented and monitored with due consideration ensuring that all of our students work towards achieving the major outcomes identified in the Curriculum Framework.
