We value the role of education in building and equipping our students to be successful contributors in their communities and to develop a vibrant understanding of our world. Our seven key learning areas allow our students to engage with, discover, and enjoy their learning.
Like all NSW schools, our curriculum is subject to New South Wales Education Standards Authority (NESA) requirements, and we’ve developed our teaching and learning programs to suit our guiding principles, Anglican faith, community and student needs.
Through studying English, students become confident communicators, critical and imaginative thinkers and lifelong learners. Students develop their language skills through speaking and listening, reading and writing, and viewing and representing.
They learn about language and literature through working with a wide range of print, spoken, visual, media, multimedia and digital texts.
Mathematics provides students with the opportunity to develop increasingly sophisticated and refined mathematical understanding, fluency, communication, reasoning, analytical thought, and problem-solving skills.
These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems relevant to their present and future needs.
Through studying science, students learn about our biological, chemical, geological, physical and technological world. They actively develop skills in planning and conducting investigations, recording and analysing data, and problem-solving.
Students explore real-world phenomena and develop solutions to authentic problems.
Through studying HSIE, students develop the skills to prepare them to participate as informed citizens actively and responsibly in the contemporary world. Students learn a wide range of topics, from geography and history to business and economics.
Through studying Personal Development, Health and Physical Education courses, students develop the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes needed to take action to protect and enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing in varied and changing contexts.
Physical education is fundamental to acquiring movement skills and concepts to enable students to participate in a range of physical activities confidently, competently and creatively.
Students can access various supports that prepare them for their future studies and careers. Beginning in Year 10, students regularly engage with the careers department to explore future pathways and gain industry experience while still studying at school.
Our Library supports students in developing their love of reading and research, and provides an opportunity to engage with books regularly. Students can explore a wide-range of fiction and non-fiction texts targeted at their reading level and interests.
