Our students in Years 5 and 6 study Japanese as outlined in the Australian Curriculum.
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.
Student & Parent Engagement
Parent evenings are held early in term 1 where parents are invited to meet their child's teacher and learn how the class activities will proceed for the year.
Parent/teacher interviews are offered at the beginning of Term 2 and Term 4.
Report cards are issued at the end of each semester. Report cards are produced and stored through Education Queensland’s OneSchool information management system.
