The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) is responsible for the curriculum, Kindergarten to Year 12, for all NSW schools.
For the high school years, NESA develops syllabuses for all subjects in 8 key learning areas:
- creative arts
- human society and its environment (HSIE)
- personal development, health and physical education (PDHPE)
- technological and applied studies (TAS).
NSW schools also offer special religious education and special education in ethics via approved providers, where available.
Like all NSW schools, we have developed teaching and learning programs to suit our local context and the needs of our students.
To learn more about the curriculum in NSW, visit:
- NSW Department of Education – key learning areas
- NESA’s Parent Guide – Schooling in NSW which provides information about learning stages, key learning areas and syllabuses
- NSW Department of Education policy – Curriculum planning and programming, assessing and reporting to parents K–12.
Stages of learning
There are 6 stages of learning from Kindergarten to Year 12. High school covers Stages 4 to 6.
- Stage 4 includes Years 7 and 8.
- Stage 5 includes Years 9 and 10.
- Stage 6 includes Years 11 and 12.
Students can now access their timetable from any device. We are moving towards having all students accessing their timetables from electronic devices where possible.
This has several advantages such as:
- saving paper
- immediate updates if rooms are changed and no need to print new copies
- ability to see daily changes, including staff, rooms and so on.
Spring edval website
Go to the spring edval website and log in with your personal webcode (given out by your year adviser and will change each year).
Next year's webcode and timetable should be available for viewing from late December. When using a mobile device, it is suggested that you save the page to your home screen and click the 'stay signed in' box. It is also recommended to bookmark this website for ease of access.
Please note that students can still get a hard copy of their timetable if requested. See Mr Holburn or Mr Rance in the library if you have any issues or have lost your webcode.
