Curriculum

At Carina State School our curriculum is delivered by an experienced staff.

  • The majority of the teaching and ancillary staff has served several years at Carina State School.
  • Itinerate teachers include Japanese, classroom and instrumental music, physical education, support teacher learning difficulties, English as a second language (ESL) teacher, teacher/librarian and advisory visiting teachers.

Our curriculum offers students a solid basis for future success.

  • Our English, maths and science curricula are based on the Australian Curriculum.
  • Other learning areas come from the Queensland Studies Authority syllabuses.
  • Achievements of students in NAPLAN are comparable and above state averages and comparable with national averages.
  • Children are supported by planned intervention and support programs in areas of need.

Reporting

One key element in our 'learning community' is the information flow about student progress. Written reports are issued three times a year.

  • Interim reports at the end of term 1 are a quick guide to how the student is progressing. It helps us together solve any emerging issues.
  • Semester reports at the end of each Semester are more detailed accounts of the student’s learning to that point in each Key learning areas (KLA).

On two occasions each year a further opportunity is given to discuss student progress with a formal parent-teacher interview process. These take place:

  • At the beginning of term 2 following the distribution of the interim reports.
  • At the beginning of term 3 following the distribution of the semester 1 reports.

We also welcome individual discussion with parents and carers at other times about student progress. Contact the classroom teacher or the office regarding an appointment.
