Ashmore State School is currently undergoing Curriculum changes. This year the Australian Curriculum is being introduced into all Queensland Schools and will gradually replace the current Queensland curriculum.

What are the benefits?

The Australian curriculum gives teachers and students more consistent standards in all schools nationwide, and an updated, contemporary 21st century curriculum.  The Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students. It identifies what all young people should learn as they progress through schooling, and is the foundation for high quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students.

What will be taught as part of the Australian Curriculum?

Students across Australia will have a consistent curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography.  These will be the five core learning areas every young Australian will study during their education from Prep to Year 6.

Core Learning Areas of Literacy, Numeracy and Science are given the highest priority. Parents and carers can support their child's education by familiarising themselves with the Australian Curriculum, to understand what their child will be learning at each stage of their schooling.  If you would like to know more please contact the school office or use the link to the Australian Curriculum.
