The Victorian and Australian primary school curriculum is designed to provide a comprehensive and well-rounded education for students in their formative years. In Victoria, the curriculum is guided by the Victorian Curriculum, which aligns with the Australian Curriculum. This framework emphasises the development of key knowledge, skills, and capabilities across various learning areas.
At Wantirna Primary School students in the early years focus on foundational skills in literacy and numeracy, laying the groundwork for future academic success. The curriculum also includes subjects such as English, mathematics, science, humanities, the arts, and health and physical education. We encourage critical thinking and creativity from our students and there is an emphasis on communication skills.
As students progress through the primary years, the curriculum becomes more specialized, allowing them to explore different disciplines in greater depth. Cross-curricular priorities, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures, Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia, and sustainability, are integrated to promote a broader understanding of the world.
Assessment practices are provided to get a fair and comprehensive evaluation of students' progress.
Overall, at Wantirna Primary School, we strive to cover the essentials of the Victorian and Australian primary school curriculum to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for academic achievement and personal development.
