Doncaster Primary School Curriculum

Rigorous review and implementation of the curriculum provides the structure, that, partnered with our values-based approach, fosters the children’s love of learning.

The Victorian Curriculum from which we work, sets out what every student should learn during their schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.

The Victorian Curriculum incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards.

Detailed information for parents, about student learning and standards, is available on the VCAA (Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority) website at this web address: http://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/pages/foundation10/f10index.aspx
