Curriculum Overview

Nazareth has a commitment to continually improving learning and teaching, focusing on the whole child, with an expectation that all students can and will succeed.

Curriculum at Nazareth Catholic School is designed upon the foundations of the Victorian Curriculum, set out for all schools across the state. The Victorian Curriculum maps out coherent and comprehensive learning and achievement standards to enable students to follow their own path of learning. 

At our school, we plan curriculum for our students that is focussed, targeted and differentiated for each individual student. This philosophy is based on knowing and understanding our students needs, both socially, emotionally and academically.

Curriculum at Nazareth spans a variety of content and learning areas. Key curriculum areas which are delivered by classroom teachers include English (Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening), Maths, Personal and Social Learning, Science, Technology, Humanities (Geography, History, Civics) and Critical Thinking Skills. 

Our specialist curriculum is planned and delivered by a team of teachers who each focus on a particular curriculum area including; STEM (Science, Technology, Maths & Engineering), The Arts, Languages (Italian) and Library. Each specialist program makes connections with classroom content and across other curriculum areas. 

Curriculum, teaching and learning is constantly reviewed and reflected on, striving for best practice that meets the needs of our students and 21st century learning.
