What We Teach

Sacred Heart School is committed to providing a curriculum which will ensure the intellectual, social, physical, aesthetic and moral development of all students. Sacred Heart focuses on engaging students in vibrant, creative learning experiences that develop inquiring minds and equips them with knowledge and skills for a life beyond the classroom. Learning and teaching begins with the needs of the individual child and works towards developing their potential as lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 sets out a single, coherent and comprehensive set of content descriptions and associated achievement standards to enable teachers to plan, monitor, assess and report on the learning achievement of every student.

The Victorian Curriculum F–10 includes eight learning areas and four capabilities. The learning areas of the Arts, Humanities and Technologies include distinct disciplines. The capabilities represent sets of knowledge and skills that are developed and applied across the curriculum. 

The curriculum taught at Sacred Heart includes but is not limited to:

  • Religious Education through a Faith Life Inquiry approach
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Discovery & Inquiry Learning (History, Geography, Economics, Science, Civics & Citizenship) 
  • L.O.T.E (Italian)
  • Physical Education
  • The Arts (Music, Visual & Performing Arts)
  • Technology (Information & Design)
  • Capabilities (Critical and Creative Thinking, Ethical, Intercultural and Personal and Social)

Students attend their specialist classes of Art, Italian, Physical Education & Library each week which run for 55 minutes each.

Contemporary learning tools such as iPads, Chromebooks, large screen monitors & casting and other internet resources are used to support and extend students’ thinking, taking their learning beyond the walls of the classroom.
