The core business of Southern Cross Catholic College is learning. We aim to empower our learners to shape, change and enrich our world and give witness to the Gospel message. The curriculum at the College refers to all the experiences which occur within the school environment. The formal, explicit curriculum is the planned, taught and assessed learning of students, whilst the informal or implicit curriculum is inherent in the relationships, interactions, practices, processes, systems, and structures that surround learning.
Southern Cross Catholic College strives to provide all students with a seamless and coherent program of learning from Prep to Year 12. Such a curriculum builds on students' prior knowledge and experiences, becomes increasingly more complex and abstract, and provides authentic contexts for learning as they journey through their schooling. A relevant and meaningful curriculum is future focused and attentive to the needs of today's youth and their world.
Learning communities are outcome oriented as they strive for students to achieve the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to function as active and effective community members. Teachers in the Early Years Phase plan and implement a comprehensive classroom learning program developed from the guidelines provided in the Australian Curriculum in the Learning Areas of; English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, The Arts, Health and Physical Education and Technologies. Teachers ensure all students are provided with multiple opportunities to demonstrate the Achievement Standards outlined within the Australian Curriculum in a range of contexts and topics. The students are also required to demonstrate learnings in Religious Education which fulfil the requirements of Brisbane Catholic Education's Religious Education Guidelines.
Active, passionate and engaging early years teachers are committed to knowing their learners, setting explicit and transparent goals, having realistic but challenging expectations of their learners, providing effective learning experiences and giving each student feedback to further enhance their learning. The development of literacy and numeracy skills is foundational to all learning. The achievement and progress of all students is tracked and monitored in these areas each year, with ongoing communication between teachers, support teachers and parents. As a learner-centred College, the changing needs of students at different stages in their development are catered for effectively.
