At Altona Green Primary School, we offer a comprehensive curriculum covering all of the learning areas and capabilities of the Victorian Curriculum.
Our Inquiry based units provide students with rich and stimulating learning experiences, so that students develop the skills, knowledge, capabilities to become curious, collaborative learners, who think critically and creatively to solve problems and apply their understanding to real-life challenges.
We aim to promote intellectual, social and emotional development, whilst empowering students to take an active role in their learning; by taking on personal responsibility and ownership of their learning.
Our Inquiry units are aligned with four key concepts:
Who are we?
Knowing and understanding ourselves as individuals and as members of groups. Understanding behaviours that promote positive and productive relationships, whilst embedding our KEFAR values.
