At Coolum State School our curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum. This is used to plan, teach, assess and report for English, Mathematics, Science, Technology and History and Social Science (HASS).
We continue to use the Queensland Curriculum to plan, teach, assess and report on The Arts, Health & Physical Education and Languages other Than English.
The Australian Curriculum
The Australian Curriculum describes what young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It sets out essential knowledge, understanding, skills and capabilities and provides a national standard for student achievement in core learning areas.
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) has a rigorous and robust curriculum development process to produce a high-quality national curriculum. ACARA draws on the best national talent and expertise to draft the curriculum and considers thousands of opinions from teachers, academics and parents to business, industry and community groups – to make improvements along the way.
