Learning at our school

At La Perouse Public School, we support our students alongside their carers to set goals in the areas of:

  • literacy
  • numeracy
  • social / behaviour
  • culture

Goals are set in Term 1 followed by a review at the end of Term 2, when we set new goals for the remainder of the year. We use Goal Hub as a platform to track and share student progress towards achievement of goals as part of Personal Learning Pathways.

The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is responsible for the curriculum, Kindergarten to Year 12, for all NSW schools.

For the primary years, NESA develops syllabuses for all subjects in 6 key learning areas:

  • creative arts
  • English
  • human society and its environment (HSIE)
  • mathematics
  • personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE)
  • science and technology.

Some primary schools may also offer languages.

NSW schools also offer special religious education and special education in ethics via approved providers, where available.

Like all NSW schools, we have developed teaching and learning programs to suit our local context and the needs of our students.
