The Australian Curriculum

The Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities that are important for all Australian students. It describes the learning entitlement of students as a foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It makes clear what all young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for high quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students. 

Our Curriculum covers the fo​llowing Learning Areas:

English, Mathematics, Science, The Humanities – History, Geography, Civic and Citizenship, Economics and Business, The Arts, Technology, Health and Physical Education 

Curriculum at Gumdale SS is informed by the DETE P–12 curriculum, assessment and reporting framework which specifies the requirements for Queensland state schools for delivering the curriculum for Prep to Year 12.  It  is based on the assumption that every student can learn and that responding to the particular learning needs of students is central to teaching. 

Science Technology Engineering Arts Maths (STEAM) Program 

Gumdale State School is one of only two state schools in Queensland offering  a specialist STEAM program. At Gumdale State School the STEAM Program offers year 5 and 6 students a transdisciplinary approach to learning and problem solving, scientific inquiry, designing for sustainability and producing artworks with digital technology. Teaching creativity and the generation of original ideas is the central vision for STEAM. Students will participate in the creation, design and appraisal of a sustainable garden project.
