Curriculum

In the Preparatory School boys follow a primary curriculum focusing on Australian Curriculum subjects including:

  • English
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Science

There is also a focus on specialist subjects including:

  • Art
  • Drama
  • Health
  • Library
  • Chinese (Mandarin)
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Personal Spiritual Development

There is a strong emphasis on the inter-relationships between various subjects and they are integrated where possible, particularly in the younger years. Specialist teachers in Art, Music, Languages and Library also work with classroom teachers to integrate learning programs.

Teachers incorporate the seven General Capabilities into planning and teaching. They include literacy, numeracy, intercultural understanding, ethical understanding, personal and social capability, critical and creative thinking and ICT capability.

Cross Curriculum Priorities are also factored into the day-to-day learning of boys.
