Primary

Meridan State College is continually focused on improving opportunities for parents to engage with the College and to support their child’s learning.  In Term 1, our Primary campus offer parent partnership meetings in each year level to allow parents to be informed of the year level curriculum focus areas and critical learning concepts from the Australian Curriculum.

These sessions also provide information on school and classroom procedures and special events your child would be involved in during the year. For those parents who are unable to attend these sessions, the year level presentations are included here. You can also access a number of helpful parent fact sheets to assist you in supporting your child’s skill development in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

The National Curriculum’s commenced implementation in 2011 in Queensland Schools. The benefits of a national curriculum are many with most teachers agreeing it’s a positive step. All students will be learning the same subjects containing the same material at the same time in every school in Australia. The curriculum has been developed using world’s best models and aims at raising the academic standards of Australian students.

Students transferring from one school to another will be at the same stage of the curriculum no matter where they have come from in Australia and no matter when they transfer. National testing will also finally be a level playing field. English and Maths remain central to the curriculum as well as science; however there are other KLA’s that are covered in the daily program.
