Hughes Primary School Curriculum
Hughes Primary School is currently implementing the new Australian Curriculum, with a specific focus on the introduction of English and Science in 2011 followed by Maths and History in 2012. The implementation of the Australian Curriculum in Geography, The Arts, Languages and Health & PE will follow. The teaching staff has been involved in extensive professional development on the Australian Curriculum led by the Curriculum Leadership Team which is composed of executive and teaching staff. The current ACT Curriculum Framework, Every Chance to Learn, is still used alongside the new Australian Curriculum, but will be gradually phased out over the next few years.
The Board, P&C and the Student Representative Council (SRC) have also been provided with online presentations on the new Australian Curriculum, so that the whole school community is fully aware of the rationale and aims, content descriptions and achievement standards of the new curriculum.
