Academic Curriculum

 

Primary –  Preparatory to Year 6

The Preparatory class operates 5 days a week between 8:25am and 3:00pm with a full time teacher aide supporting the teacher in  each class.  Students participate in swimming, physical education, music, library, school excursions and cultural performances as well as other classroom activities that make up the Primary years program. An Early Learning Centre has been purposefully designed to house the Prep classes. For further information please refer to the current Preparatory Handbook.

 Years 1 to 6  at Heights College are part of an exciting and integrated learning program that begins in Kindergarten and flows through to Year 12. These foundational years of learning reflect the Mission Statement of the College which states that we exist ‘to provide a Christ-centred education where individuals are taught and nurtured to strive together for excellence.’ In order to ensure that all students have the opportunity of reaching their full potential, the curriculum has been designed to meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum supported by school-based curriculum documents that reflect the Christian ethos and leadership focus of the College.

Throughout each year level, students are encouraged to achieve to their personal best in a wide range of areas.  Subjects include: English, Mathematics, Humanities and Social Sciences, Science, The Arts, Technologies, Music,  Health and Physical Education, Chinese, and Health.
