Curriculum

​St Paul's endeavours to provide an atmosphere in which the child will develop attitudes of caring, responsibility, achievement and a desire to learn. Within such a culture, we believe that learning occurs best when it builds on what a child already knows. Guidelines generated by ACARA and Brisbane Catholic Education are currently utilised in designing and implementing appropriate and sequential learning experiences in the following nine curriculum areas:

Our school aims to cater for all members of our learning community. Learners - whether they are require extension, experience learning difficulties, are from a different cultural background or are achieving at appropriate Year level - all have gifts, talents, strengths and abilities that must be acknowledged and catered for in order to optimise the development of potential and to maximise their learning outcomes. All students are individuals with strengths and weaknesses and they all require a rich, varied and stimulating curriculum that acknowledges individual levels of achievement and ability. At St Paul’s the delivery of our learning program is underpinned by the BCE Learning Framework and our own St Paul’s School Vision for Learning.

St Paul’s offer opportunities in a number of sports. There is an annual swimming program for all students (Prep to Year 6). In summer, students from Year 4 to 6 have been playing in a local cricket competition (Saturday mornings). In winter, students from Year 5 and 6 participate in a local schools rugby league and netball competition. Students are also selected for district and metropolitan Athletic and Cross Country competitions.

School Camp
Year Six students attend a school camp that is held every 2 years. This is a great experience - planned, organised and facilitated by the students with support of their teachers. It is an important part of the senior primary leadership program.

Theatre Restaurant
On alternative years to the school camp, the Year 6 students plan, organise and operate a Theatre Restaurant for parents and carers. This, too, is a wonderful highlight of the school year.
