Primary School Curriculum

At Australian Islamic College the curriculum fulfills the requirements of School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) and Department of Education.

Combined Curriculum of Primary

Curriculum is what we teach and what we teach impacts student learning. Here at the Australian Islamic college, we place a great emphasise on creating the best environment for your child. This is not only made possible by electing research based strategies but ultimately understanding that the key is to have a balance of both, what to teach and how to teach it. Having the combination between curriculum and current teaching and learning methods and strategies creates the perfect balance to providing the best environment for student academic and well being success.

The Australian Islamic College follows the Western Australian Curriculum which encompasses components of the Australian curriculum. This sets out the knowledge understandings, skills, values and attitudes that students are expected to acquire. The curriculum has a twenty-first century focus which includes three cross curriculum priorities and seven general capabilities. All three campuses are required to follow the set programs design by curriculum experts. Educators do have the flexibility within their class to differentiate to meet the needs of their students.

The West Australian Curriculum comprises:

  • The Early Years Learning Framework
