Curriculum

The Victorian Curriculum is the Foundation to Year 10 curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards, which schools use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.


Currently the curriculum programs are delivered with a mix of classroom lessons and specialist programs in English, Maths, Art, Music, Library, ICT and Physical Education.
