School Curriculum

‘Onward and Upward' is our school motto and at Gardenvale Primary School, our educational program is comprehensive, innovative and well-resourced. Our curriculum is aligned with the Victorian Curriculum that aims to prepare students for success in education, work and life.

The Victorian Curriculum provides a single curriculum for levels Prep–6. The Curriculum is made up of: English, Mathematics, Integrated Studies (History, Geography & Science) and we also include LOTE (Japanese), PE, Visual and Performing Arts. The Victorian Curriculum sets consistent national standards to improve learning outcomes for all young Australians. It sets out, through content descriptions and achievement standards, what students should be taught and achieve, as they progress through school. It is the base for future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community.
