Curriculum


Here at Redesdale Mia Mia Primary School, our students enjoy an extensive curriculum with literacy and numeracy as its main focus. We also take the time to expose and nurture children in the arts, physical education and sport, gifted and talented education, and information and computer technology.
 

Classroom Program
Students from Foundation to Grade 6 are engaged in 2 hours of literacy and 1 hour of maths per day. Students thoroughly learn the foundations of literacy and numeracy through explicit teaching, hands-on activities, exploration, small group teaching and educational games to equip them with the tools necessary for their future studies beyond primary school.
