Curriculum

Curriculum Primary

For Primary College students there is a strong emphasis on Literacy and Numeracy to prepare them to take advantage of the great opportunities that lie ahead.

One of the foundational aims of Austin Cove Baptist College is an emphasis on a high standard of education in a safe, caring and positive environment.  Opportunities are provided for the students to learn cooperatively, to develop respect for others and to become independent learners.

Students are encouraged to progress at a rate that is appropriate to their ability and development.  We place strong emphasis on attainment of solid literacy and numeracy skills, as well as on inquiry learning, which includes the areas of History, Science, Health and Technology and Enterprise.

This year we have Specialist Teachers in Music, French, Physical Education, Library Skills and Christian Education.

Computer Information and Communication Technologies are taught and used across the curriculum at all year levels.

 

Primary Goings On

Artist of the Week - Jack Birch

Hi, my name is JACK BIRCH.

I’m in Year 1C and my teacher is Mrs Bond. I started at ACBC in Kindy in 2015. At School, I really enjoy Art with Mrs Tie.

I love playing AFL football and when I’m older I'd like to be a football player. At home, I like to play football with my brother Max. My favourite AFL team is the Eagles.

My favourite colour is blue because it is an Eagles Team colour.

Tree Planting

Primary students recently planted 200 tree seedlings at the High School Campus.

The seedlings were supplied by Men of the Trees in Rockingham, and a team from Bunnings Halls Head helped to plant 12 established trees. A big thanks to Mandurah Toyota for their support in providing prizes and tree guards.

Recently a group of very excited students headed off to Jandakot Airport, Bounce and Hungry Jacks for their Principal’s Mystery Tour with Mrs Bowen and Mr Newby. The students were a delight to take away and were fine ambassadors for the school. Congratulations to these students and our larger group of children who achieved their CPR star in the first semester.
