Our curriculum

​​Improving educational outcomes for all young Australians is central to the nation's social and economic prosperity and will position young people to live fulfilling, productive and responsible lives. The Alice Springs Education (Mparntwe) Declaration has two distinct but interconnected goals:

Goal 1: The Australian education system promotes excellence and equity

Goal 2: All young Australians become:

    • confident and creative individuals
    • successful lifelong learners
    • active and informed members of the community.

Achieving these education goals is the responsibility of Australian Governments and the education community in partnership with young Australians, their families and carers and the broader community.  With this declaration in mind, at Sts Peter and Paul's School students engage in the following Key Learning Areas from the Australian Curriculum and Brisbane Catholic Education:

  • Religious Education
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities & Social Sciences (HASS)
  • Health and Physical Education (HPE: Personal, Social and Community Health)
  • The Arts
  • Technologies

At Sts Peter and Paul's School Specialist Teachers conduct lessons for the following Learning Areas:

  • The Arts 
  • Movement and Physical Activity (Prep - Year 6)​
  • Movement and Physical Activity - Perceptive Motor Skills (Prep)
  • Languages - Japanese from (​Prep - Year 6)

    Underpinning the teaching, planning and assessing of the Key learning Areas is the Brisbane Catholic Education Model of Pedagogy.© BCE/ Learning and Engagement

    This model of pedagogy brings together the principles and practices of learning and teaching that can lead to success for all learners. These principles and practices arise out of the beliefs and values of the Brisbane Catholic Education Learning an​d Teaching Framework and an evidence-base upon which teachers can construct their practice to ensure that all students are progressing in their learning and development.

    The model provides a common language for planning and reflecting on learning and teaching across all Brisbane Catholic Education Schools.

    Effective pedagogy:

    • relates to the principles and practices of teaching children.

    • is teaching that makes learning visible and leads to successful achievement for all learners

    • creates conditions where the relationship between the learning and teaching is focused, generative and responsive enabling the learners to participate and progress in their academic and social development.​
