Our curriculum is student-focused, aims to maximise achievement for all students and provides opportunity for enrichment in the areas of academics, culture and sport.
Students will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across seven key learning areas. They are:
- Humanities and Social Sciences, new in 2017
- Health and Physical Education
- The Arts
- Digital Technology – Years 1 – 3, new in 2017
- Technology – Years 4–6.
At Wilsonton, students and teachers access the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences and Digital Technology. Our staff are utilising the Department of Education’s Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) units of work as scaffolding to support and guide effective implementation of the Australian Curriculum.
We also have a full-time Master Teacher onsite to assist with the planning, implementation and assessment of curriculum content.
Assessment and reporting
Reporting is done twice yearly at the end of each semester. Report cards are a formal way to report on student progress across the eight Learning Areas.
We believe that the most valuable means of reporting student progress is the Parent-Teacher interview. Parents and guardians are offered a formal interview twice a year with class teachers. In addition to this, our teachers are always willing to make a mutually suitable time to discuss your child’s progress throughout the year.
