Our Prep Curriculum is based on the Australian Curriculum.
Prep students are taught and assessed in English, Maths, Science, History,
Geography and Technology (Design and Digital technologies). They also learn The Arts and take part in HPE activities. They
continue to learn through the Early Years Curriculum for Social and Personal
