At Uraidla Primary School, we follow the developmental sequence of skills and understandings in the eight learning areas of the Australian Curriculum: English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, the Arts, Technologies and Languages (Indonesian). You can find out more about the curriculum requirements and achievement standards for each year level at Home | The Australian Curriculum.
Most subjects are taught by the class teacher, but we are fortunate to have specialist teachers in the following areas: Science, Indonesian, Physical Education, the Arts and our Gardening and Environmental Sustainability program.
Learning music is a big part of Uraidla Primary School. We offer students the opportunity to be part of a Junior or Senior Festival of Music choir, to take instrumental brass or woodwind music lessons and join our school band, to take up private tuition in piano or guitar, or to learn the drums and join our percussion ensemble.
Older students also have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of co-curricular activities, including SAPSASA sport, Reader’s Cup, Lego League, chess and debating.
Technology and STEM
All students from Reception through to year 6 have a personal device (iPad or laptop) provided by the school to use as a tool for learning at school. We have a strong focus on STEM (Science, technology, engineering and maths), with students involved in real world problem solving using plugged and unplugged technology.
