The Religion curriculum in the Early Years at OLSCC is drawn from the Brisbane Catholic Education Religious Education documentsCurriculum for all other Prep to Year 4 classes is based on the Key Learning Areas formulated by the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) materials. This includes: 
  • English 
  • Mathematics 
  • Science 
  • The Technologies 
  • Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS) 
  • The Arts 
  • Health and Physical Education 

Fundamental academic skills and foundations are laid in the Early Years. Our curriculum is delivered by individual classroom teachers for core learning areas and specialist teachers assist in the delivery of The Arts and Physical Education. A Teacher Librarian maintains and continually expands an already vast library collection and works with teachers and students regularly. 

Age-appropriate pedagogies are embedded across all Early Years classrooms in order to ensure students are exposed to a range and balance of approaches that embody the characteristics of high quality teaching and learning. This pedagogical approach, along with our College focus on Visible Learning, fosters high engagement and improved outcomes for our students. 

All classrooms are equipped with Ricoh Interactive Screens, enabling interaction with our College wide learning management system, Canvas, to allow teachers to deliver content in innovative manner. Students also have access to a variety of digital technology devices, supporting the delivery of teaching and learning utilizing a range of different styles.
