Curriculum

The term ‘curriculum’ refers to all the arrangements we make for student learning and development.

 

It includes:

  • Activities
  • Learning and teaching approaches
  • Ways in which learning areas are organised
  • Decision on the need for and use of facilities

Curriculum at St Patrick’s is based upon deep understanding of students, their development, needs, strengths, interests and the way they learn best.
