Learning environment and curriculum

The core business of schools is to provide students with a rich learning environment that is open, respectful, caring and safe.

This ideal learning environment optimises wellbeing. It reflects a positive school ethos that makes the school an exciting, stimulating and welcoming place. Quality classroom teaching has a profound influence on student learning and wellbeing.

Curriculum that builds the foundations for wellbeing:

  • explicitly teaches personal and social capabilities
  • equips students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes and strategies to understand and manage themselves and their relationships.

In the Bremer Alliance of State Schools, we use the Australian Curriculum to guide planning and curriculum targets.

General capabilities​ play a significant role in the Australian Curriculum, and in our local schools in equipping our students from primary through to high school to live and work successfully in the 21st century. The general capabilities provide structure to build and integrate the following key areas in all learning environments:

  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capability
  • Critical and creative thinking
  • Personal and social capability
  • Ethical understanding
  • Intercultural understanding
