International Primary Preparation Course Curriculum
The International Primary Preparation Courses (CRICOS: 049712G) curriculum develops students’ communicative competence and academic language skills through a blended learning approach which integrates technology and real-world tasks. Students study topics and themes relevant to their lives and learning so that graduates are fully prepared to enter mainstream academic classes with Australian Primary School students. Below is an overview of the two stages:
Stage 1: Basic Language Development
Stage 2: Task Driven Language Development
Health and Physical Education
This programme is designed to prepare students aged 9 - 12 for entry into HPE in the mainstream and forms part of the College’s holistic approach to education.
HPE is studied entirely in English. Students learn the vocabulary and skills for success in various sports. Students are taught, coached, encouraged and developed in a range of different sports. A big part of the programme includes integration into mainstream HPE classes and events. Students study alongside Australian students and participate together. Students also compete in major events throughout the year, including the Swimming Carnival, Cross Country Carnival and Athletics Day.
Streamline Reporting & Support
Academic audits, regular online reporting and communication with parents enables teachers to work in partnership with the home. In this way, we can keep parents informed of their child’s academic progress.
A network full-time of support personnel, including Heads of Year, Chaplain, Counsellors, English as a Second Language and Learning Enhancement teachers, is available. A comprehensive tutorial program is designed to extend and support students in their pursuit of academic excellence.
