Learning & Teaching

​St Rita’s Primary School offers a broad and comprehensive curriculum, in line with the requirements of the Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) and the Queensland Studies Authority (QSA). Included in the curriculum at St Rita’s is the Religious Education Curriculum of Archdiocese of Brisbane.

Learning Areas

Curriculum implementation at St Rita’s aligns with the BCE Learning and Teaching Framework and is based on evidence based planning processes taking whole school, class and individual assessment data into consideration.  With high expectations in mind, teachers determine what students need to be taught and achieve by considering current levels of achievement and following the content descriptions and achievement standards for each year level in each subject.  Student progress is reported against these standards.
