Australian Curriculum

​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 at Marymount Primary School are: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Science (comprising History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship and Economics and Business), The Arts (comprising Dance, Drama, Media Arts, Music and Visual Arts), Languages (French), Health and Physical Education and Technologies (comprising Digital Technologies and Design and Technologies).

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.


We believe:

  • Every learner is created in the image and likeness of God
  • Every learner seeks to find meaning in life and learning and in the Catholic Christian Tradition
  • Every learner is a lifelong learner
  • Every learner is unique and we respond creatively and flexibly to all
  • Every learner can achieve success in life and learning where diversity is valued and shared wisdom contributes to decision-making that enriches and enlivens our world.


Every learner brings to the learning experience their own richly diverse life journey to contribute to a community in communion, empowered by the Spirit to be at the service of others.

We respect the needs of our children change and we respect the parameters that ACARA and Brisbane Catholic Education provide for us to educate each child in an academic, spiritual, physical and cultural manner. Our Curriculum and practices are constantly collaboratively revisited and renewed to further enhance and develop our programs to maximise each child’s learning success.
