Dederang Primary School implements the Victorian Curriculum and utilises the Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO) continuum, to ensure that we are providing a broad, rigorous curriculum from Foundation to Year Six, and being accountable, responsible and reflective of our learning programs and practice.
Classroom programs are progressive and personalised, catering for each child’s needs, encouraging parental involvement and promoting active learning. The school has high, but achievable student expectations. Student progress is monitored and informs our teaching practice.
At Dederang Primary School teachers plan differentiated daily lessons in Literacy and Numeracy. We integrate the subjects of History, Geography, Health, ICT and Civics & Citizenship into our lessons. Students also receive daily lessons in Physical Education, and weekly Social Emotional Learning (SEL), STEM, Performing Arts (Drama, Dance and Music), Chinese, Visual Arts and Library lessons.
We take every opportunity for our students to work with the community. Every Friday students participate in our Hands-on Learning program, working alongside teachers and community volunteers as part of our sustainability lessons (including horticulture, cooking and building).
