Learning and Teaching

At Our Lady Star of the Sea school a comprehensive curriculum is implemented which aims to develop the potential of each student. All members of our learning community are encouraged to achieve their personal best. Teachers believe that the child is at the centre of all learning and develop programs with needs and interests, skills and understandings of the child being the first consideration thus recognising the contemporary world they live in and the importance for engaging them to be active and critical citizens in a technological world.


Our Lady Star of the Sea school embraces a curriculum based on the Victorian Curriculum F–10. The Victorian Curriculum sets out what every student should learn during their first eleven years of schooling. The curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for lifelong learning, social development,  and active and informed citizenship. The Victorian Curriculum F–10 incorporates the Australian Curriculum and reflects Victorian priorities and standards.
