Curriculum

At Malanda State School we follow the Australian Curriculum. Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA), is responsible for the development of the Australian Curriculum. The Australian Curriculum sets out what all young Australians are to be taught, and the expected standards of achievement as they progress through schooling. For additional information on ACARA view the Foundation to Year 10 Australian Curriculum.

Key learning Areas (KLAs) studied at Malanda State School are: English; Maths; Science; Humanities and Social Sciences (Geography and History); The Arts (Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Drama and Media); Technology; Health and Physical Education; and LOTE (Japanese). Specialist teachers are appointed for HPE, Music and LOTE.

In 2018, unit plans for all Key Learning Areas (KLAs) will be developed in accordance with the Australian Curriculum. Queensland’s Classroom to Curriculum (C2C) unit materials will continue to be used for English, Maths, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences (Geography and History).

We also have Foundation Learning Programs to support the development of our students’ foundational skills. These programs include: Sound Waves (individual student text book required); STARS comprehension; and our Sight Word program.

If you wish to see overviews of the units of work your children will be engaged in at each grade level throughout the school, you are welcome to speak to their class teacher or our Head of Curriculum (HOC).
