At Collinsville State School our curriculum unit plans are designed to cater for students in multi-age classes by providing differentiated learning experiences.

Our curriculum is aligned with the Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science and History. 

In all other subject areas our curriculum is aligned with the Essential Learnings and Standards of the Queensland Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting (QCAR) Framework.

These subjects areas are:

  • Studies of Society and the Environment (SOSE)
  • Health and Physical Education (HPE)
  • Languages other than English (LOTE)
  • The Arts
  • Technology

Curriculum planning is reviewed and updated each term to ensure our curriculum programs are aligned to new syllabus requirements as they are released.

Teaching and Learning at Collinsville State School is based on the Dimensions of Teaching and Learning (DOTaL) and Explicit Instruction.
