Curriculum

All Hallows’ School is committed to providing student centred learning programs that meet the needs of all students. Diversity of background, abilities and aspirations is embraced and nurtured. This is seen in the promotion of strategies for individualised learning that appropriately support, extend and challenge each learner. Similarly, a broad range of subject offerings and support for diverse senior studies programs cater for both academically and vocationally oriented pathways for our students. The design and delivery of curriculum promotes a learning community in which students and teachers actively engage in reflective, creative and critical thinking.

All students, in Years 5 to 12 study Religious Education as part of their academic program. The key learning areas of The Arts, English, Languages, Mathematics, Science, Social Science and Technology are embedded throughout the curriculum across Years 5 to 12. All subject areas are supported by specialist teachers who are highly engaged, well-resourced and up to date with current best practice through their commitment to ongoing professional learning and sharing.

Technology is integrated across the curriculum, with all students utilising a laptop with access to digital resources and school based support to engage in blended learning experiences. Respectful digital citizenship and personal on-line safety are addressed within academic subjects and in the Life Skills Program that complements other curriculum and pastoral structures to support the overall personal and social development and well-being of all students. The Life Skills program aims to provide developmentally appropriate coverage of identified key issues for teenage girls, with diverse needs, in our context as a Catholic School in the Mercy tradition.
