Key learning areas

Narangba State School Curriculum is organised around the disciplinary knowledge found in the eight key learning areas of the Australian Curriculum: English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages (Japanese years 4 to 6). The curriculum is designed to teach students what it takes to become confident and creative individuals and become active and informed citizens. The Australian Curriculum outlines what all students will learn and a set of standards for students to achieve regardless of where they live in Australia and where they attend school. Parents, families and carers have the most influence on their children and when families are actively involved in their children’s education, children usually enjoy school and achieve better results. Throughout the year your child’s teacher will display the learning goals and a criteria for success in all curriculum areas and I encourage you to read and discuss this with your child. 
For further details, the Australian Curriculum website offers information for parents including an overview of what is taught at each stage of the curriculum. 

Specialist music and HPE lessons are offered to all year levels. Students in years 4, 5 and 6 participate in LOTE (Japanese) lessons.  

Students in years 4, 5 and 6 may choose to participate in a selection process to enter our instrumental music program. Instrumental music lessons (brass, woodwind and percussion) occur weekly. Students in years 3 to 6 are invited to join our school choir. Our school concert band, beginners’ band and choir perform at a number of school and community functions each year. 

Other activities in which students at the school are involved include a variety of sports, excursions, academic competitions, school camps (from year 4) and artistic performances. 

Our students are immersed in a technology-rich environment where information and communication technology (ICT) is a focal medium through which teaching is presented and learning is accessed. Through this technology students are engaged in literacy and numeracy learning providing the strongest foundations for future intellectual growth and development.
