Australian Curriculum

Macgregor Primary School has fully implemented the Australian Curriculum in English, mathematics, science, history and geography. Both the Health and Physical Education and Arts components of the curriculum will be implemented from 2015. Details about each of these learning areas can be found at the following website: Australian Curriculum website

Educators at Macgregor have used a filtering tool to break down the achievement standards and indicators from the Australian Curriculum, into Power Standards; these are essential learnings, building blocks for future years of education, and are part of the guaranteed curriculum at the school. Power standards are shared with the students and aid in the setting of Learning Intentions and Success Criteria for all lessons. They are directly reported against at both mid and end of year formal reports, as well as within the term 3 learning journey and in individual student portfolios.
