Challenging and motivating students to take responsibility for their learning is a major goal of our curriculum program.
We base our curriculum on the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS), and are progressively introducing the Australian Curriculum. We see Literacy and Numeracy skill development as fundamental to learning in all other areas.
In addition to English and Mathematics, we utilise an Integrated Inquiry approach that allows students to actively investigate the way our world works.
Through the student-centred Inter@ct Curriculum Program, students investigate the concepts of Identity, Sustainability, Social Justice, Creativity, Community, Change , Necessity and Curiosity, and cover the following curriculum areas:
Specialist Programs operate in Physical Education, Visual Arts and Performing Arts. (link to their pages)
Computers, laptops, ipads and Interactive Whiteboards are some of the tools regularly used in our curriculum programs.
We also recognise and promote individual student interests & needs through a range of extracurricular, intervention and enrichment programs, including:
At Narre Warren North Primary School, we believe all students can reach their full potential.
Written reports are completed at mid-year and end of year for each student. Students also complete a self-assessment of their progress and parents have the opportunity to make a written comment in their child’s report.
Parents are invited to attend contact interviews early in first term, to meet their child’s teacher/s and share information relevant to their learning.
Parents of students in Grades Prep – 2, are able to participate in a parent-teacher interview after the mid-year report is sent home.
Students in Grades 3 – 6 conduct Student Led Conferences. Students present to their parents and teacher, highlighting their achievements and discussing areas for improvements and future learning goals.
