Curriculum

The curriculum at Aberfoyle Hub R-7 School is based on the Austrailan Curriculum and covers students learning about themselves and their world, as well as the skills of literacy, numeracy and information and communication technologies. It aims to enable our students to gain an excellent education.

The Australian Curriculum describes the range of knowledge, skills and values associated with learning for primary school students. It is organised into 8 specific Learning Areas from Reception to Year 12 and are agreed nationally by all Australian Ministers of Education.

General Capabilities are explicitly addressed in the content learning areas. The general capabilities encompass the knowledge, skills, curriculum content in each learning area and the cross-curriculum priorities will assist students to live and work successfully in the 21st century.

The Australian Curriculum includes 7 general capabilities :
Literacy
Numeracy
Information and Communication Technology
Critical and Creative thinking
Personal and social capability
Ethical understanding
Intercultural understanding

Cross curriculum priorities:

All children and students learn and progress in different ways and at different rates. Achievement Standards include specific outcomes and guide educators when tracking students progress. The emphasis is on challenging students to achieve a higher standard, rather than passing or failing at a particular point in time.
