Elliminyt primary school
At Elliminyt Primary School the student is the centre and purpose of all that we do. Our teachers and support staff work hard to provide a teaching pedagogy reflective of 21st century designs including ICT rich environments and Personalised Learning for all students. This innovative, rich and rigorous curriculum is delivered in a positive, stimulating and challenging learning environment where every student experiences success and develops a love of life-long learning.
Our students are encouraged to explore their world to become thinking, informed, resilient and self-directed learners who are able to be the best they can be and contribute actively to their community.
Teachers and students work collaboratively in Professional Learning Communities, to create adaptive teaching options to cater for the individual needs of all students. All teachers have shared responsibility for all students.
We are guided by the Victorian Curriculum F–10 which is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship. Our Professional Learning Teams have identified the Essential Learnings in the Victorian Curriculum F -10 and use a range of student data to provide our students with authentic learning experiences that are reflective of their individual needs and the Essential Learnings. PLTs plan collaboratively taking into consideration the learning needs of all students in their group to ensure consistency in each class.
The curriculum at Elliminyt Primary is divided into the following learning areas:
Health & Physical Education
Languages - Indonesian
Student development in these learning areas is supported through focus on explicitly teaching the overarching capabilities; Critical and Creative Thinking, Personal and Social, Intercultural and Ethical understanding.
“Learning to Learn” is a special program run at the commencement of the school year. This program aims to set the tone and direction of the school in a collaborative and consultative setting. The content of this program is revisited at the beginning of year and underlies the day to day operations of the school and classrooms. Students participate in setting the ‘culture’ of their classroom from the outset.
