Victorian Curriculum

At Bethal Primary School we organise our teaching to maximise student learning. The morning sessions are generally a 2 hour Literacy block followed by Mathematics. Throughout the week teachers endeavour to cover a minimum of 10 hours Literacy and 6 hours Mathematics.

We follow the Victorian Curriculum to plan our units of work and students are assessed against the Learning Standards in the 7 levels: Foundation to Year 6.

We use an Inquiry Approach to learning which encourages students to ask questions and discover new understandings through research, investigations, discussions, and sharing with others.

At Bethal we aim for our students to be literate, numerate and curious. We also place a strong emphasis on developing the whole child and we enforce our three values of RESPECT, PERSEVERANCE AND COLLABORATION which are promoted at all times.

Bethal Primary School offers Specialist programs.These are: Physical Education, Spanish, Music and Visual Arts. These programs are very well planned using the Victorian Curriculum and its guidelines. Each program is well resourced and offers many rich activities that children enjoy.
