Does your school teach the Australian Curriculum?
Classes from Prep to Year 10 follow the Australian Curriculum. Through the Australian Curriculum framework, we aim to grow students into independent thinkers who are able to use creativity, invention, and logic to present and interpret their views and the views of others.
