Curriculum

At Enoggera State School, we aim to achieve the best educational outcomes for every student in our school.  We uphold our vision of ‘every child, every success’ by providing quality curriculum and teaching, positive home-school partnerships, strong school leadership, and a safe and orderly learning environment.

The Queensland Education system has a holistic approach to learning - from the early phase through to middle and senior schooling, further education, training and employment.  The curriculum that is taught across the phases of learning in Queensland schools is developed by the Queensland Curriculum & Assessment Authority (QCAA). Teachers decide how best to plan and deliver the curriculum to ensure all students have opportunities to engage in meaningful learning and achievement.

In 2017, our school’s intended learning experiences across Prep to Year 6 will be guided by the following:

Australian Curriculum

Students from Prep to Year 6 engage with the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, Geography and History.  In each of these subject areas students are working towards a National Achievement Standard by the end of the year as published on the Australian Curriculum website.
