At Marymount Primary School, our principle goal as
a Catholic Christian community is to educate all to live the Gospel of
Jesus Christ as successful, creative, confident, active and informed learners
empowered to shape and enrich our world.
The foundation of the Curriculum
at Marymount Primary School is interwoven with the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA),
Brisbane Catholic Education Policies and current educational research.
The Australian Curriculum Learning Areas taught

Business), The Arts (comprising Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts),
Languages (French), Health and Physical Education and Technologies (comprising

Essential to the core of the Primary School
Outcomes are that children gain a firm foundation in literacy, numeracy, our Catholic
Traditions in classroom environments that foster goals and growth, and are
tailored to every child’s different learning style.
