Curriculum

In line with our shared vision and values at Coolum State High School, we are committed to delivering quality and excellence in teaching and learning for a 21st century future. Curriculum at Coolum State High School is delivered by expert teachers to provide students with a challenging, rich and diverse range of learning experiences. The curriculum at all year levels of study, will engage students actively in the pursuit of academic, vocational, cultural and sporting success.

The pedagogical model of Marzano’s Art and Science of Teaching is used as a framework for our teaching practice and professional development in order to ensure a contemporary research based approach is informing the choices Heads of Department and teachers make when structuring unit plans, resources and lessons in order to maximise individual development, improvement and success for all the students in our school.

The curriculum is designed in response to Queensland Studies Authority (QSA) Syllabuses, Curriculum to  Classroom (C2C) units, the Australian Curriculum ACARA documents and Vocational Educational and Training modules. Assessment is aligned to the teaching and learning processes against explicit criteria and standards documented in ACARA documents, QSA syllabuses and VET competencies.

Whole school curriculum priorities, literacy and numeracy and e-learning are also provided through all curriculum areas to ensure all our students at Coolum State High School graduate with qualifications and skills necessary to be successful in a 21st century global community.
