At Suncoast, our Prep – Year 12 Curriculum provides challenging opportunities and stimulating learning experiences that enable all students to explore and build on their God-given gifts and talents.
About our Curriculum
Firmly Grounded in the Australian National Curriculum
The Prep – Year 12 curriculum is founded in the Australian Curriculum and is comprehensive and balanced; striving for high standards of understanding and skills in the learning areas of the Arts, English, Health and Physical Education, Mathematics, Science, Humanities, Technologies and a Language.
Personalised for the Growth Journey of Each and Every Student
Our goal is to personalise learning to meet the diverse needs and capabilities of each student. Our focus is to ensure that students view their own success, measured by distance travelled not necessarily by academic results achieved.
Christian Perspectives Ground our Students’ Intellectual, Emotional, Artistic and Physical Development
Importantly, it is our desire to support all our students to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active, informed citizens. Our Christian perspective underpins all aspects of learning with a focus on academic, spiritual, emotional, social and physical development.
Junior Primary Curriculum
Junior Primary (Prep – Year 3) students develop their knowledge through both the formal curriculum, which includes the planned, taught and assessed learning of the students and the informal curriculum, inherent in the relationships, interactions, practices, processes, systems and structures that surround learning. Specialist staff instruct students in Languages, Health and Physical Education and the Arts.
Upper Primary Curriculum
The Upper Primary (Years 4 – 6) curriculum introduces an additional specialist lesson in Visual Arts. We acknowledge that no learning area exists on its own and it is, therefore, concerned with integration and the interrelationship between them.
Middle Years Curriculum
Students study core subjects and a range of electives in the Middle Years (Years 7 – 9). These span the Arts (Music, Dance, Art and Drama), Health and Physical Education and Technologies.
Senior Years Curriculum
In the Senior Years (Years 10 – 12) students choose from a wide range of academic and vocational courses. We are committed to giving students a meaningful and valid post-school pathway to University, a traineeship or apprenticeship, by being a registered training organisation.
