Curriculum

Junior SCHOOL

As students in Years 7 and 8, you are at the beginning of your secondary school journey.

As you make the step up from primary school to secondary school you may be feeling nervous or excited. This is a journey that presents you with some tremendous opportunities.

During these two years you will study a range of subjects. Some of these will be familiar to you from primary school. Others will be new.

Craigieburn Secondary College offers more than just curriculum. You have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of other interests. You could join a sporting team, take up debating or participate in a musical production. You can also have an active voice in how the school operates.

We value the contribution students make through the Student Representative Council. Participating in additional programs at school gives you the chance to develop your skills in areas such as leadership, decision making and creativity.

In the Junior School Handbook you will find information on subjects offered, information on special programs and general information about the College.

YEAR 7 & 8 CURRICULUM STRUCTURE

In accordance with the AusVELS, Craigieburn Secondary College has developed a revised Learning and Teaching program. A major part of this work involved devising a Year 7 and 8 curriculum framework that mapped out skills and thematic/integrated approaches to learning and teaching.

The aims of the reformed curriculum program ensure that skills and content are understood to be relevant and important in students’ lives, encourage students to become lifelong, autonomous learners and breakdown the traditional isolationist view of specialist subject groupings.

Key elements specifically include:

  • students having a deep understanding of learning with an ability to apply/transfer
  • knowledge in different contexts;
  • the development of generic skills including literacy, numeracy, resilience,
  • communication, thinking, reflecting, team work and social/personal;
  • a closer link with the community and real life experiences.
