Catholic schools teach the same curriculum as government schools.
However, there is a strong religious dimension across the curriculum which is most obvious in the subject of Religious Education.
The curriculum covers:
- Religious Education
- Technology and Applied Studies
- Human Society and its Environment
- Creative and Practical Arts
- Personal Development, Health and Physical Education
- Languages other than English
Secondary schools also offer a range of vocational education courses which are delivered by specially trained teachers. Students also have access through their schools to TAFE delivered vocational programs, and in some cases, university courses.
Most students are organised into grades or classes. However, increasing reference is made to overlapping stages, each of which covers two years of schooling.
|Early Stage 1:||Kindergarten|
|Stage 1||Years 1 and 2|
|Stage 2||Years 3 and 4|
|Stage 3||Years 5 and 6|
|Stage 4||Years 7 and 8|
|Stage 5||Years 9 and 10|
|Stage 6||Years 11 and 12|
