Narre Warren North Primary School Curriculum

Challenging and motivating students to take responsibility for their learning is a major goal of our curriculum program.

We base our curriculum on AusVELS. AusVELS incorporates the Australian Curriculum F–10 for English, Mathematics, History and Science within the curriculum framework first developed for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). AusVELS  reflects the design of the new Australian Curriculum whilst retaining Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.

We see Literacy and Numeracy skill development as fundamental to learning in all other areas. In addition to English and Mathematics, we utilise an Integrated Inquiry approach that allows students to actively investigate the way our world works.

Through the student-centred Inter@ct Curriculum Program, students investigate the concepts of Identity, Sustainability, Social Justice, Creativity, Community, Change , Necessity and Curiosity, and cover the following curriculum areas:

  • Interpersonal Development

  • Personal Learning

  • Civics and Citizenship

  • Economics

  • Geography

  • History

  • Science

  • Communication

  • Design, Creativity and Technology

  • Information and Communications Technology

  • Thinking Processes

  • Health Knowledge and Promotion
