Each student at Currumbin Community Special School has an individualised program that is developed through reflection on their progress in the Australian Curriculum. Teachers select and differentiate units of work using the Queensland Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) students with disabilities resources to content standards.
All students access the Australian Curriculum content and work through the General Capabilities depending on their Individual Curriculum Plan.
The general capabilities play a significant role in the Australian Curriculum in equipping young Australians to live and work successfully in the twenty-first century.
In the Australian Curriculum, capability encompasses knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions. Students develop capability when they apply knowledge and skills confidently, effectively and appropriately in complex and changing circumstances, in their learning at school and in their lives outside school.
The Australian Curriculum includes seven general capabilities, as shown in the figure below.
The Literacy aspect of the General Capabilities provides a signifant learning focus for all of our students at Currumbin Community Special School.
