St Eugene School Mission Statement is the starting point for curriculum development. The curriculum is also underpinned with the principles of an outcomes approach to education. These include: a clear focus on learning outcomes; high expectations for all students; a focus on development; planning for outcomes with outcomes in mind; expanded opportunities to learn and a clear link between learning outcomes, planning and assessment.
Our school curriculum is designed to assist students to become lifelong learners.There are nine key learning areas : Religious Education, English, Science, Languages other than English, Health and Physical Education, Mathematics, Studies of Society and Environment, Technology and the Arts. From a core curriculum – all students study essential elements of the curriculum during their years of compulsory schooling. The syllabuses state in clear terms what students are expected to know and to be able to do with what they know (that is, learning outcomes) at well-defined stages during the years of schooling.
Our school-based programs take account of our unique school environment and student needs and abilities.‘Core” (or essential) learning outcomes, ensure all students are provided with opportunities to achieve success, and that they know and understand what is required of them in order to demonstrate their achievements. A curriculum defined in terms of learning outcomes is empowering for students and their parents, for teachers and administrators, and for the community in general. Parents and other members of the community are encouraged and welcome as partners and lifelong learners in curriculum.
