Teachers use the Australian Curriculum and the SA TfEL Framework to program learning.

The Australian Curriculum areas of English, Maths, Science, History and Geography, The Arts, Languages, Health and PE and Technologies focus on seven general capabilities – Literacy, Numeracy, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) competence, Critical and creative thinking, Ethical behaviour, Personal and social competence, and Intercultural understanding.

The Australian Curriculum also focuses on three cross-curriculum priorities – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia, and Sustainability.

Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum

The Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum (KS:CPC) is required for all children and young people in our school. It’s taught each year by teachers who have completed a full-day KS:CPC training course.  

It teaches children to: 

  • recognise abuse and tell a trusted adult about it 
  • understand what touching is appropriate and inappropriate  
  • understand ways of keeping themselves safe. 

Visit Keeping Safe: Child Protection Curriculum information for parents and carers for more information. 

Music, sport and ICT

The school hosts a variety of visiting shows to support the curriculum. All students are encouraged and supported to attend.

We offer face to face Instrumental Music lessons in brass and woodwind.

The school has a high level of sport participation, both within the school and the community, through SAPSASA, Sports Day, S. E. Cross Country, daily fitness, annual Fun Run and class skill lessons.

All students use the computer network and classroom computers (IBM). Interactive whiteboards are installed in most classrooms. A class set of iPads is available for classes to use throughout the week. Pods of laptops are available for upper primary students.
