At St. Joseph’s the curriculum is organised to ensure that each class participates in a two-hour literacy block and a one hour numeracy block daily. The Humanities (History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, Economics and Business), Science, Technologies and Capabilities are taught through termly units of study. 

The units of study are a dynamic and engaging way for our children to develop knowledge about their world and develop the skills and competencies that will equip them for life in the 21st century.

These skills include:

  • Independent learning.
  • Co-operative learning.
  • Problem solving.
  • Creative thinking.
  • Critical thinking.
  • Generation of new ideas.
  • Planning skills.
  • Analysis skills.
  • Evaluation skills.


At St Joseph’s, teachers assess and monitor student growth, learning progress and achievement against the achievement standards within the curriculum framework and within the learning and teaching program at St Joseph’s.
