Australian Curriculum

​St Patrick’s School implements the Australian Curriculum for Prep to Year 6.  We provide a contemporary educational setting, immersing students in all the learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. 

The curriculum emphasises the importance of knowledge, understanding and skills in all subject areas, along with General Capabilities and Cross-Curriculum Priorities.

The Australian Curriculum describes a learning entitlement for each Australian student that provides foundations for successful, lifelong learning and participation in the Australian community.  It acknowledges that the needs and interests of students will vary, and that schools and teachers plan from the curriculum in ways that respond to those needs and interests.

The Australian Curriculum sets out what curriculum content all young people should be taught and the learning expected at points in their schooling through the specification of Achievement Standards (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority, 2011).  Please visit for any further information.

In addition to this, St Patrick's School is guided by Brisbane Catholic Education's Teaching and Learning Framework, High Yield Strategies, Strategic Renewal Plan, Model of Pedagogy and Effective and Expected Practices to ensure a high quality and balanced 21st century Catholic Education that progresses the learning of each student from Prep to Year 6.
