Each term, our students engage in a unit of study that is integrated with Reading, Writing and Mathematics. These units of study link closely with the Victorian Curriculum and provide ‘through lines’ from Foundation to Grade Six.
Our units of inquiry allow students to build knowledge and understanding of key areas of the curriculum alongside building background knowledge of the world in which they live and thrive. Additionally, we ensure that the students are provided with opportunities to engage with the wider school and educational community via a range of extra-curricular opportunities such as excursions and incursions.
To provide student agency, our Student Representative Council have input and provide feedback on each unit of study to ensure each meet the needs of the student community. Our topics rotate bi-annually and include, yet are not limited, the following:

- Animals and Insects – Science and Ethical Capability (Pets and Farms, Native Animals, Global Eco Systems and Animal Adaptations)
