The Australian Curriculum

Queensland schools provide education ensuring the success of every student in:

  • Kindergarten
  • Prep to Year 10
  • Year 11 and 12.

The P-12 curriculum, assessment and reporting framework (P-12 CARF) specifies the curriculum, assessment and reporting requirements for all Queensland state school principals and staff delivering the curriculum from Prep to Year 12.

Contact your school to discuss your child's assessment and curriculum. School contact details are available by phoning 13 QGOV (13 74 68) or searching the schools directory.

Kindergarten

Kindergarten, known as kindy, is a part-time early childhood education program for children in the year before school. Attending a kindy program supports children learn through play, make friends and prepare for the transition to school.

Kindergarten programs are offered in long day care services and stand-alone kindergarten services. At Blackbutt we have Blackbutt C&K and Guppys.   The Queensland Government also delivers kindergarten programs via the eKindy and Kindergarten in remote communities initiatives.

Prep to Year 10

Queensland schools are required to implement all eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum Version 8 in Prep to Year 10 by the end of 2020.

The Australian Curriculum consists of eight learning areas, seven general capabilities and three cross curriculum priorities. In delivering the curriculum, all aspects of the achievement standard for each learning area and/or subject provided in a year and/or band are to be covered.

The eight learning areas include:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Health and Physical Education
  • Technologies
  • The Arts
  • Languages

Schools continue to use the Queensland Curriculum for learning areas that have not yet been replaced by the Australian Curriculum until the end of 2020.
