Learning Areas

The Curriculum is currently a combination of the Australian Curriculum and the Queensland Curriculum. We continue to use the Queensland Curriculum until each phase of the Australian Curriculum is introduced and implemented. At the present time we are teaching English, Mathematics, Science and History form the Australian Curriculum.

Learning Areas have their foundation in the Early Learning Areas of Prep.

The following table shows the links between these areas of the curriculum: ​
