Curriculum

The Whole Child- 'Making Connections- Creating Opportunities’

Our dedicated, professional staff is committed to high quality teaching and learning for all of our students. Our teachers work to ensure that in every classroom, every day, every child is drawing on their prior knowledge to develop new knowledge and skills. With explicit instruction, as a primary focus, each child works towards improving their results.  Staff will guide our students through their formative years so that each child will grow in capability across all areas of their lives. This includes the academic, physical, cultural, community orientated and social and emotional aspects of being.

Our curriculum and the way it is delivered is designed to produce confident students who are educated and informed citizens and able to apply their knowledge in innovative, creative ways and able to use digital technology.

At Harlaxton State School improving each student’s achievement is regarded as our core business. We believe each student has the ability to learn and therefore every student is expected to demonstrate this as an ongoing progress.

Harlaxton State School has a high indigenous student population and the staff are extremely pleased with the National Curriculum’s emphasis on embedding indigenous perspectives into the curriculum. We believe this will assist us with student and parent engagement within the school.

Students will develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across nine key learning areas. They are:
 
• Mathematics
 
• English
 
• Science
 
• History
 
• Geography
 
• Health and Physical Education
 
• The Arts
 
• Technology
 
• Languages Other Than English (LOTE) – German
 

Reporting is done twice yearly at the end of each semester. Report cards are a formal way to report on student progress across the eight Learning Areas.

We believe that the most valuable means of reporting student progress is the Parent- Teacher interview. Parents and guardians are offered a formal interview twice a year with class teachers. Parent teacher interviews are held at the start of Term 2 and 4. In addition to this, our teachers are always willing to make a mutually suitable time to discuss your child’s progress throughout the year.
