Curriculum

At Strathfieldsaye Primary School we use the Victorian Curriculum as a planning tool to provide engaging educational programs. The curriculum aims to meet the challenges of preparing young people for a world in which knowledge is highly valued and constantly changing, a world in which work, society, community and personal relationships are subject to increasingly complex pressures. Young people need a broad range of knowledge and social, personal and thinking skills to be successful. The Victorian Curriculum enables young people to develop through their schooling and will prepare them for their final years of study. Our highly trained staff are extremely dedicated and endeavour to ensure that your students at Strathfieldsaye Primary School receive the best education.
