‘Learning anywhere, anytime’
Curriculum at Namadgi School is based Australian Curriculum. 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 the twenty-first century.
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, Health and Physical Education, and technology that students will be taught that term.
All students participate in the core subjects: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Health and Physical Education.
Students are introduces to the elective subjects in Year 6 and are given a taste so they can begin to make informed decisions surrounding their elective program in Years 9 and 10. Students have the opportunity to participate in Art, Woodwork, Metalwork, Cooking, Dance, Drama, Textiles and IT.
