Curriculum

 

The College encourages an approach of excellence in all endeavours. Students are taught subjects across nine Key Learning Areas (KLAs). Class teachers follow the Australian Curriculum for subjects of Religion, English, Mathematics, Science, HaSS, Arts, LOTE, HPE and Technology. As a Catholic College, in the Toowoomba Diocese, our class teachers follow the curriculum of Catholic Studies as directed by the Diocese of Brisbane Catholic Education.

 

Significant emphasis is given to literacy and numeracy. Students engage in Stamina Reading and all students are subscribed to Mathletics. Each of these programs have documented data to show their positive effects on student performance.

 

Specialist teachers are responsible for teaching a range of subjects within the core curriculum. All children from Prep to Year 6 are taught by subject specialists in the areas of Music, Health and Physical Education, Library, Language (German), Drama and Dance.

 

The College operates from an attitude of excellence, expecting that each child will work hard and be supported in their academic pursuits. We believe that every child can and will achieve to high standards.
