Curriculum at Namadgi School
Curriculum at Namadgi School is based on the Australian Curriculum. The Australian Curriculum is designed to help all young Australians to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. Presented as a developmental sequence of learning from Foundation to Year 10, the Australian Curriculum describes to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is being taught and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school.
The three-dimensional design of the Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum recognises the importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding alongside general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities. Disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding are described in the eight learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages.
In each learning area or subject, content descriptions specify what young people will learn, and achievement standards describe the depth of understanding and the sophistication of knowledge and skill expected of students at the end of each year level.
Accompanying the Australian Curriculum Namadgi School also offers social and emotional learning through the Positive Behaviours for Learning framework and a reflection of these values and behaviours is visible throughout the school.
