In 2010 Australian Schools began the implementation of a National Curriculum.
Prior to this all states and territories were responsible for developing their own Curricula (in South Australia, this is SACSA). The development of the Australian Curriculum represents a commitment by all Australian states and territories to work together to develop a world-class curriculum for all young Australians.
Our school is following the timeline below for the implementation of subjects described in the Australian Curriculum:
|Learning Area||Implementation Year|
|Humanities and Social Sciences (Geography, Civics and Citizenship, Economics and Business)||2014|
|The Arts (Dance, Drama, Visual Arts, Music, Media Arts)||2015|
|Health and Physical Education||2016|
|Technologies (Digital Technologies, Design and Technologies)||2016|
As the above subjects are phased in, these learning areas will replace the current SACSA subjects that are being taught.
For more information regarding the Australian Curriculum please visit the ACARA website.
