Durong South State School teachers plan, teach, assess and report using a range of mandated curriculum: Australian Curriculum; Queensland Curriculum; Assessment and Reporting; and the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines (Prep only).

Australian curriculum

In 2012, Durong South adopted the first three Australian Curriculum subject areas, Mathematics, English and Science, that were released by the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority.

Teachers adopted the curriculum through the use of the Queensland Curriculum to Classroom (C2C) units of work as well as self-created units that addressed the Achievement Standards of the Australian Curriculum for students in Year Prep to Year 7.

In 2013, History, as a subject area, was made available and our school planned, assessed and reported on this subject area.

In 2014, Geography will be released and we will spend some time becoming familiar with the curriculum requirements to ensure we are ready to take this subject area on-board.

Queensland curriculum, assessment and reporting

For the remaining key learning areas: the Arts; Health and Physical Education; Technology; SOSE (Political and Economic Systems and Culture and Identity); and Languages, teachers use a range of resources to plan, teach and assess against the outcomes in the Queensland syllabus.

Early years curriculum guidelines

Our early years teacher aligns teaching and learning in Prep to the Early Years Curriculum Guidelines. Learning experiences are designed to challenge and develop students' capabilities in the areas of: Active Processes; Social and Emotional Learning; and Health and Physical Learning (Early Mathematical Understandings and Language Learning and Communication were replaced by the Australian Curriculum areas, Mathematics and English, in 2012).
