Our upper primary students (Year 5/6) build upon the foundations established in our lower and middle primary years. Students are encouraged to become more independent with a focus to take on an active role in their learning process. They are given increased responsibility for managing and organising their learning and continue to develop independent work habits. Students also develop their ability to work collaboratively in groups through planned and meaningful activities.
The Australian Curriculum is designed to develop successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. It is presented as a progression of learning from Foundation - Year 10 that makes clear to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is to be taught, and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school.
