The staff at Caloundra State Primary School have a strong focus on literacy, numeracy and the integration of technology as an effective teaching tool. Caloundra State Primary School has utilised Education Queensland’s Curriculum Framework to create a school based curriculum which maximises student outcomes, develops life-long learning attributes and prepares students to meet the requirements of the complex and diverse nature of our current world.

The eight Key Learning Areas (KLAs) studied are:

  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Technology
  • The Arts
  • Studies of Society Environment

  • Languages

At Caloundra State Primary School, we promote best practice through our curriculum, teaching, assessment and reporting.

The teachers from each year level work together each term, to map learning experiences and Common Assessment Tasks for each KLA that reflect Queensland’s Essential Learnings and the Australian Curriculum.

School reports are distributed and parent teacher interviews are held at the end of each semester.
