The Australian Curriculum

The implementation of the Australian Curriculum was introduced to Queensland Schools in January 2012 and is gradually being phased in to replace the Queensland Curriculum.
Queensland State Schools have implemented the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science and History.
Within all learning areas, there is a focus on developing seven General Capabilities of students. The General Capabilities of the Australian Curriculum are developed through the Key Learning Areas (English, Mathematics, Science and History). The General Capabilities are Literacy, Numeracy, ICT competence, Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical Behaviour, Personal and Social Competence and Intercultural Understanding. Throughout their schooling students will develop and use these capabilities in their learning across the curriculum, in co-curricular programs, and in their lives outside school.
Incorporated within each of the four Learning Areas and the seven General Capabilities, are the three Cross-Curriculum Priorities. Students will learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures, Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia, and Sustainability.
At Nashville State School teachers use the Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) materials created by Education Queensland to plan units for the Australian Curriculum. The C2C materials provide a starting point for curriculum planning and our teachers adapt them to meet individual student needs.
