Our Curriculum


We are extremely proud of our teaching and learning program at Wattle Park Primary. Our objective is to prepare students to become active, caring, lifelong learners who demonstrate respect for themselves and others, and have the capacity to positively participate in the world around them. Each individual student has their own learning goals each semester based upon Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science and or Humanities, as well as social and personal capabilities.
