Learning and Teaching Introduction

The curriculum at St Monica’s is in line with the Victorian Curriculum. The Victorian curriculum incorporates the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science and History, with adjustments made where necessary to reflect Victorian priorities and standards.

The Standards outline what is important for students to learn and develop during their time at school. Students will develop knowledge, skills and behaviours that will equip them to be life-long learners within a changing society. At St. Monica’s, we use these standards to plan programs for learning, assess student progress and report to parents.

Following is an outline of the curriculum at St. Monica’s, based on the Victorian Curriculum.

At St Monica’s every attempt to make integrated links across the curriculum to maximise learning. The critical and creative thinking, ethical, intercultural, personal and social capabilities are embedded across all subject areas.
