What we Teach...
The Victorian Essential Learning Standards describe what is essential for all students to achieve throughout out their primary education. This is the framework for planning the whole school curriculum by setting standards for students to achieve in core areas.
At Bourchier Street Primary School we use these standards in planning our teaching and learning programs, including assessment and reporting of student achievement and progress. The Standards identify what is important for students to achieve at different stages of their schooling.
The Victorian Essential Learning Standards have three components:
Disciplined-based Learning: Mathematics, English, The Arts, Humanities, LOTE and Science.
Interdisciplinary Learning : Communication, Design, Creativity and Technology, Information and Communications Technology and Thinking.
Physical, Personal and Social Learning: which includes Health and PE, Civics and Citizenship, Personal learning and Interpersonal growth.
