Contemporary Learning Experience (CLE)

Year Level 'Big Ideas'
Each cohort of students is provided with a curriculum that meets their individual needs. Our Contemporary Learning Experience provides this opportunity through a strong connection to Victorian Curriculum, meaningful and enriching inquiry and contextually relevant experiences. The Learning Explorations are explored through a variety of ‘Big Ideas’ that grow in complexity over the Year Levels.
