Specialists Subjects

Specialist Subjects are subject to change year to year


Students acquire communication skills in Italian. They develop understanding about the role of language and culture in communication.  The Italian curriculum aims to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to ensure that students:

  • communicate in the language they are learning
  • understand the relationship between language, culture and learning
  • develop intercultural capabilities
  • understand themselves as communicators


Physical Education is the acquisition of movement skills, concepts and strategies to enable students to confidently, competently and creatively participate in a range of physical activities. As a foundation for lifelong physical activity participation and enhanced performance, students develop proficiency in movement skills, physical activities and movement concepts and acquire an understanding of the science behind how the body moves. Movement is a powerful medium for learning, through which students can acquire, practise and refine personal, behavioural, social and cognitive skills. The Health and Physical Education curriculum addresses how contextual factors influence the health, safety, wellbeing, and physical activity patterns of individuals, groups and communities. It provides opportunities for students to develop skills, self-efficacy and dispositions to advocate for, and positively influence, their own and others’ health and wellbeing.


Health focuses on students enhancing their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. The curriculum focuses on supporting students to make decisions about their own health, safety and wellbeing and on developing the knowledge, understanding and skills to support students to be resilient. It also enables them to access and understand health information and empowers them to make healthy, safe and active choices. In addition, the content explores personal identities and emotions, and the contextual factors that influence students’ health, safety and wellbeing. 

The Science curriculum has two interrelated strands: Science Understanding and Science Inquiry Skills. Together, the two strands of the science curriculum provide students with understanding, knowledge and skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world.

The Technologies include Design and Technology and Digital Technologies.

Design and Technology aims to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to ensure that students become critical users of technologies, and designers and producers of designed solutions.

The Digital Technologies curriculum aims to ensure that students can design, create, manage and evaluate sustainable and innovative digital solutions to meet and redefine current and future needs.


The Visual Arts curriculum aims to develop students’ conceptual and perceptual ideas and expressions through design and inquiry processes. We aim to develop confidence, curiosity, imagination and enjoyment and a personal aesthetic through engagement with visual arts making, viewing, discussing, analysing, interpreting and evaluating.
