In 2017 all schools transitioned to the new Victorian Curriculum. The new Victorian Curriculum is a necessary step to give students the skills they need for work and life: literacy, numeracy, scientific knowledge and skills, resilience, respectful relationships, the use of digital technologies and the capacity for critical and creative thinking and expression.
Schools aim to give students the life skills to manage themselves as individuals and in relation to others, understand the world in which they live, and act effectively in it.
Standards are set at a challenging level, not minimum competence, to suit the age and developmental stages of students. This helps to ensure that students are stretched to learn, rather than doing work they find easy.
