Curriculum

In Year 8, 9 and 10 students complete a curriculum in English, Mathematics and Science that is consistent with the National Curriculum (syllabuses produced by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority). In 2013, History will be added to this suite of subjects.

Year 8 and 9 students complete a ‘junior phase of schooling’ curriculum with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills. For subjects other than those linked to the National Curriculum, they are based on ‘key learning areas’ incorporating ‘essential learnings’ from Queensland Studies Authority syllabuses

Year 10 serves as a ‘transition’ year that concludes the junior phase and prepares students with the skills required for successful participation in the senior phase of learning.

Year 11 and 12 comprise the ‘senior phase of learning’. This is based on a broad offering of academic subjects and a diverse array of accredited vocational education, offered within and external to the school. Senior students are also able to access vocational programs not able to be offered at the school, such as hairdressing and automotive, through the partnership School-TAFE Links program. The school also supports students participating in the School-based Traineeships and Apprenticeships in order to establish a career pathway after completion of school.

Some subjects are able to be offered via virtual schooling or distance education. All senior students are supported in planning an individual learning pathway to a viable post-school destination.
