P-10 Curriculum

‘Learning anywhere, anytime’

Curriculum at Namadgi School is based on the 2007 ACT curriculum framework ‘Every Chance to Learn’ and the newly released Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science and History. It includes the national curriculum’s capabilities to ensure that students not only acquire the essential skills of literacy and numeracy, but are also equipped with the resilience, problem solving, socialisation and Information Communication and Technology skills to participate as effective members of C21 society.

Curriculum Units are developed by teachers using the backward design approach of 'Understanding by Design' to ensure content rigour and the alignment of assessment practices with each unit's targeted knowledge and skills. Early each term, teachers publish outlines of content and skills in literacy, numeracy and the other six key learning areas of science, SoSE, The Arts, P.E., Japanese and technology that students will be taught that term.
