With our vision as the basis for our Curriculum Framework, GASS teaching and support staff implement a curriculum based around the following pedagogical principles:

  • High Expectations - of our students and staff in striving to grow, achieve and succeed
  • Student Diversity – knowing, valuing and planning for the diverse needs of our student learning community
  • Productive Partnerships - ensuring that students, parents & the wider community know and are involved in contributing to the best learning outcomes for students
  • Explicit Teaching - implementation of lessons are based on the Grand Avenue State School Instructional Model in order to scaffold successful student learning.

Pedagogical framework

Australian curriculum 

The Australian curriculum is designed to help all young Australians to become successful learners, confident and creative individuals, and active and informed citizens. Presented as a developmental sequence of learning from Foundation - Year 10, the Australian Curriculum describes to teachers, parents, students and others in the wider community what is to be taught and the quality of learning expected of young people as they progress through school.

The three-dimensional design of the Foundation – Year 10 Australian curriculum recognises the importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understanding alongside general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities.

Specialist lessons taught by specialist staff in Music, Japanese LOTE (years four, five and six) and Physical Education.

Our whole school curriculum framework is organised into overviews by year level.  This framework supports consistency within and across year levels and delivers a vertically and horizontally aligned curriculum.
