LEARNING AT CJC

Curriculum

The Curriculum is delivered in two ways at Caulfield Junior College::  The Victorian Curriculum and the French Binational Program

 

Victorian Curriculum

Learning areas and Capabilities.  The Victorian Curriculum F–10 includes both knowledge and skills. These are defined by learning areas and capabilities. This curriculum design assumes that knowledge and skills are transferrable across the curriculum and therefore are not duplicated. For example, where skills and knowledge such as asking questions, evaluating evidence and drawing conclusions are defined in Critical and Creative Thinking, these are not duplicated in other learning areas such as History or Health and Physical Education. It is expected that the skills and knowledge defined in the capabilities will be developed, practised, deployed and demonstrated by students in and through their learning across the curriculum.

The design of the Victorian Curriculum F–10 is set out below:

 

Learning areas

The Arts

  • Dance

  • Drama

  • Media Arts

  • Music

  • Visual Arts

  • Visual Communication Design

English

STUDENT WELLBEING

The wellbeing of our students is paramount to us. Our students are supported in a variety of ways, both socially and emotionally under the leadership of our Student Wellbeing Coordinator, Shauna Sanderson.

 

These areas of support include:

  • Our Student Wellbeing Team, who collaborate to ensure the wellbeing of our students is always our primary focus. 

  • Our LADIT (Let’s All Do It Together) Program runs in all classes at the beginning of the year, with the purpose of building a sense of community within and between classes.

  • A Restorative Practices approach is used across the school to help students build empathy and understanding of and for each other. 

 

The school can also engage external experts to support your child if required, including having access to:

  • Psychological and Speech Therapy services via the DET.

  • Counselling through Oz Child Family Services.

 

RAISING BILINGUAL CHILDREN

ÉLEVER DES ENFANTS BILINGUES

Teaching our children a second language from a young age is a gift that will allow them to flourish throughout their lives. One of our bilingual specialist teachers, Vincent Berraud, has written an article that aims at helping parents raise bilingual children, by offering tips and ideas that can be practiced at home.
