Curriculum

At Strathpine State School we are committed to developing the necessary skills within all our students to ensure they are prepared for a preferred future. We provide challenging and exciting learning opportunities for all our students. Our teachers use Curriculum into the Classroom to implement the Australian Curriculum. They plan, teach, assess and report on the Australian Curriculum in:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Study of Society and the Environment (SOSE) and History
  • Geography

The Essential Learnings are covered in the following Key Learning Areas:

  • The Arts
  • Information Communication Technologies (ICT)
  • Health and PE
  • Languages Other Than English (LOTE)

The Whole School Curriculum Plan outlines the topics to be covered in our classes in 2017.

We have a strong focus on the development of literacy, numeracy and ICT skills. Our teachers and specialist staff provide a variety of activities that cater for the needs of all students.

A key feature of our school program is the daily 2 hour literacy block and 1 hour numeracy block.  During the Literacy Block, students are explicitly taught the skills of reading, writing and oracy.

Students are also taught critical literacy skills which will enable them to become informed, literate members of our society.  Our teachers dedicate a 1 hour numeracy block targeting important mathematical concepts and skills.
