The College curriculum delivers the Australian Curriculum and the South Australian Certificate of Education. The rationale for the Australian Curriculum centres on improving the quality, equity and transparency of Australia’s education system.
The Australian Curriculum sets the expectations for what all Australians should be taught, regardless of where they live or their background. For Foundation (Reception) to Year 10, it means that students now have access to the same content, and their achievements can be judged against consistent national standards. The Australian Curriculum for each subject specifies content and achievement standards. The content describes the knowledge, understanding and skills that are to be taught and learned within a given subject. The achievement standards describe the quality of learning (the depth of understanding, extent of knowledge and sophistication of skill) expected of students who have studied the content for the subject.
