At Beechmont State School we follow the Australian National Curriculum which currently includes English, Mathematics, Science and
History. Art, Health and Physical Education, classroom
Music and SOSE are also part of our extensive curriculum. We are using the Curriculum to the
Classroom (C2C) units of work.
The Language Other Than English (LOTE) that is taught
is Japanese. Japanese is taught to every class from Prep through to Year 6.
Children learn to speak as well as write Japanese.
We have visiting classroom Music, Physical
Education and Japanese teachers who take each class for 45 minutes
each week in their specialised subject area. Currently, children in early years
are also participating in a gross motor program.
A varied sporting program is conducted by the
classroom teachers each Friday. There is a year long sporting program that includes the sport your child will be
participating in during the year. Due to costs of bus hire, we are unable to
take part in weekly Interschool sports competitions as the cost of hiring buses
would mean a minimum of $15 a week per child to each family.
An Interschool Athletics Carnival occurs
each year between Beechmont and Canungra schools in order to select a district
team to send to the Gold Coast North athletics trial.
Our Learning support and Special
Education teacher, Mrs Foran, works closely with the class
teachers to provide a range of programs to assist students with
learning difficulties. Please contact us for more details.
