Curriculum at Holy Trinity

The curriculum at Holy Trinity is developed through the use of the Australian Curriculum within the framework of the International Baccalaureate, Primary Years Programme.

The Australian Curriculum sets the expectations for what all Australian students should be taught, regardless of where they live or their background. For F-10, it means that students now have access to the same content, and their achievements can be judged against consistent national standards. Schools and teachers are responsible for the organisation of learning and they will choose contexts for learning and plan learning in ways that best meet their student’s needs and interests.

Information Communication Technology

The use of information communication tools and technologies is integrated across the whole curriculum.

The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.

 

Catering for Individual Needs within Classroom

All classroom programs are differentiated to cater for a range of abilities and learning styles. Our teams of teachers work with children requiring additional assistance in literacy, numeracy and where English is a second language. Members of the team also develop programs for children requiring extension. These extra programs may be in-class or on a withdrawal from class basis.

Reporting

Holy Trinity staff report regularly to parents about their child’s progress in a range of formats. Reporting includes a first term interim report, two formal written semester reports, parent-teacher interviews, learning journeys, student-lead conferences and special work exhibitions. Interviews may be arranged at any time by parents or staff.
