Our Curriculum

Staff aim to empower students to have high expectations and to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour by developing genuine relationships based on mutual respect.

The College is focused on further developing best teaching practice and student pathways, based on the expansion of an ICT rich curriculum that fosters engaged learning, deep understanding of fundamental concepts and prepares students to become active, responsible learners.

Mallacoota P – 12 College expects all students to contribute and achieve to the best of their ability.

There are intervention and student support  across all year levels, featuring Individual Learning Plans (ILP) that target students who require additional assistance.

Victorian Essential Learning (VELS).

The curriculum at Mallacoota P-12 is based on the Victorian Essential Learning (VELS). A summary of the VELS structure can be obtained by clicking here.

The college has a broad model of curriculum delivery in years prep to ten.

In the early years students are introduced to specialist programs in art, music, library skills and physical education.

The College is proud of its strong VCE results over recent years and considerable resources and planning are allocated to ensure this continues. VET courses are expanding.

Curriculum in 2013

In 2013 we have enriched the P-10 curriculum program of the school.

For years P-6 we have maintained 3 primary learning areas and introduced Music/ Art and a PE Specialist program.

For years 7-10 we developed the by Vertical Unit System (VUS) which allows for a broader range of subjects to be delivered and provides for greater student choice.

In years 9 – 12 we are building a pathways portfoilio for each student.

VCE and VET subjects are available for students in Years 10, 11 and 12. Many of these subjects run on a two year cycle to ensure breadth of curriculum.

Assessment and Reporting

School Reports are an important means of informing parents of student progress.  Written reports are prepared at the end of the First Semester (June), and at the end of the Second Semester (December). Secondary and Primary students are also issued with an Interim Report at the end of Term 1 and Term 3.

Parent/Teacher Discussions

These discussions are held, for the whole school twice a year, at the beginning of Term 2, and at the beginning of Term 4.

We encourage all parents/guardians to make use of these opportunities to meet with staff to discuss student progress. Students from Year 6 upwards are also encouraged to attend these discussions.
