At Northside Christian College, we aim to create a sense of wonder in our students about the Character of God and all he has made. We are committed to creating a culture where students and teachers foster their God given curiosity and love to learn. Our curriculum intentionally focusses on developing the skills and habits that equip students to become life-long learners. The Curriculum of Northside Christian College meets and builds upon the Australian Curriculum standards and capabilities challenging students to be the best they can be.
In the Primary School, the emphasis is placed on foundational skills and building students’ capacity to learn with the courage and confidence to explore the world and to try new things. There is a commitment to developing students’ literacy and numeracy as well as their competency in an increasingly digital world, through differentiated, specialist programs. Curriculum is targeted to meet individual needs with an emphasis on support and extension.
In the Middle School, there is an emphasis on establishing student’s good habits for learning and life. In Year 9, the Survival Challenge encourages students to be courageous and resilient, taking risks and challenging themselves. The curriculum aims to develop a broad and deep understanding of the world and their place in it. At all year levels, the curriculum is taught through a Biblical world view encouraging students to use their learning to impact the world for good.
In the Senior School, there is an increased emphasis on academic rigour and the ability to solve problems and achieve success in all areas of their lives. Students understanding of themselves as global citizens and preparedness for life after school are two important foci.
Our curriculum model from Prep to Year 12 is Understanding by Design which results in a curriculum geared toward the practical application of learning to real life problems.
