At St Mary’s we are a community working in partnership to nurture the values and traditions of the Catholic faith in a warm, welcoming environment. We aim to provide a curriculum which develops positive social behaviours, values and problem solving skills. Our curriculum is based on the Victorian Curriculum.
The Victorian Curriculum F–10 includes both knowledge and skills. These are defined by learning areas and capabilities. This curriculum design assumes that knowledge and skills are transferrable across the curriculum and therefore are not duplicated. For example, where skills and knowledge such as asking questions, evaluating evidence and drawing conclusions are defined in Critical and Creative Thinking, these are not duplicated in other learning areas such as History or Health and Physical Education. It is expected that the skills and knowledge defined in the capabilities will be developed, practised, deployed and demonstrated by students in and through their learning across the curriculum.
