Learning at our school

Find out more about what your child will learn at our school.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is responsible for the curriculum, Kindergarten to Year 12, for all NSW schools.

For the primary years, NESA develops syllabuses for all subjects in 6 key learning areas:

  • creative arts
  • English
  • human society and its environment (HSIE)
  • mathematics
  • personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE)
  • science and technology.

Some primary schools may also offer languages.

NSW schools also offer special religious education and special education in ethics via approved providers, where available.

Like all NSW schools, we have developed teaching and learning programs to suit our local context and the needs of our students.

Stages of learning

There are 6 stages of learning from Kindergarten to Year 12. Primary school covers Early Stage 1, or Kindergarten, to the end of Stage 3.

  • Stage 1 includes Kindergarten to Year 2 (Kindergarten is referred to as Early Stage 1).
  • Stage 2 includes Years 3 and 4.
  • Stage 3 includes Years 5 and 6.


Homework is set each week and should be handed in to the class teacher on Fridays. Homework is designed to;

  • Revise, reinforce and consolidate class work
  • Develop study practices, time management and independent learning habits
  • Require individual project work

Students in Year 1 and above will also be required to read widely from a variety of texts.

  • Hand sanitiser (Kindergarten only)
  • Glue stick
  • Barrel pencil sharpener
  • HB Pencils

It would also be appreciated if each child could donate 2 boxes of  tissues to the class.
