Curriculum at OLHC

Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum is being implemented across our school as new key learning areas are available. At present, the key learning areas of English, Mathematics, Science, History and Geography have been released and fully implemented in our school.

School-wide Pedagogies

Consistency is applied across the school in terms of teaching approach to the different curriculum areas. In the lower school, Jolly Phonics guides the learning of sounds and phonics. Spelling is taught according to a school-based programme, with strategies being taught for effective learning of words. Most curriculum areas, including RE, require an inquiry focus in teaching and learning. Teachers have engaged with Visible Learning and are making learning and success visible to the students via learning intentions, success criteria and timely feedback.
