|Curriculum at Murdoch College is the provision of all learning experiences at the College. This includes the formal classroom curriculum, MILE and extra-curricular activities. The curriculum follows the guidelines of the Australian Curriculum issued by the Schools Curriculum and Standards Authority.
This framework sets out what all students should know, understand, value and be able to do as a result of the programs they undertake. The variety of learning experiences offered by Murdoch College in the area of curriculum provision allows the College to meet the overarching outcomes of the framework and meet its obligations as a school in Australia.
Murdoch College commenced in 2000 and was well placed to immediately implement all the ideals of the Curriculum Framework. The College's curriculum, from its outset, has focused on outcomes and desired results of schooling for its students.
The formal classroom curriculum in Middle School and Year 10 encompasses all Learning Areas and the ideals elucidated in the Framework. Additionally, the Teacher Advisor System provides a 'values based' learning system which adds to and supplements classroom delivery to meet the learning outcomes set out in the Curriculum Framework document within the overarching and eight Learning Area Statements.
Murdoch College teachers use the Curriculum Framework to develop their own learning and teaching programs according to their circumstance, ethos and the needs of their students.
Teachers will place a copy of their learning and teaching programs on the College's MC Online. This will enable students and parents to be aware of the educational processes and the assessment guidelines that students will receive during their course.
