Introduction

St Joseph’s Learning and Teaching is based on the Victorian Essential Learning Standards and the Australian Curriculum ( AusVELS ).

The Victorian Essential Learning Standards and AusVELS are the guiding documents for all Victorian schools. They allow the development of an integrated approach to curriculum planning and implementation. These frameworks allow for, and encourage, the variety of assessment and reporting procedures currently used at St Joseph’s.

The Australian Curriculum describes a learning entitlement for each Australian student that provides a foundation for successful, lifelong learning and participation in the Australian community. It acknowledges that the needs and interests of students will vary, and that schools and teachers will plan from the curriculum in ways that respond to those needs and interests. The Australian Curriculum acknowledges the changing ways in which young people will learn and the challenges that will continue to shape their learning in the future.

St Joseph’s is able to offer effective educational programs due to the commitment of a dedicated and professional staff who possess the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to meet the variety needs of our students.
