The curriculum offered at Rivercrest reflects an inquiry learning approach that builds upon the students prior learning and past experiences. While the teaching of literacy and numeracy is a core component of the curriculum, there is also a strong focus on social, emotional, physical and spiritual development.
The curriculum aims to foster the ability to think critically and creatively, within a framework of inquiry-learning and discovery, such that students are able to make valid and meaningful connections between their learning and their developing worldview. Rivercrest offers the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme for ELC–Year 5.
Rivercrest students are encouraged to see themselves as global citizens. In addition to acquiring knowledge, they are encouraged to recognise the contribution and responsibility they have to engender greater harmony among the people of the world; to be respectful, compassionate, creative and critical thinkers, who, although prepared to challenge prevailing ideas, are also sensitive and reflective.
Rivercrest students are encouraged to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with others. Throughout their years at Rivercrest they will be challenged to become citizens of the world who epitomise Christ’s commission to love and serve others.
The curriculum offered at Rivercrest is grounded in 21st century thinking where all facets of education are connected and interlinked. Rivercrest embraces an inquiry approach to learning within the context of a Christian worldview.
Rivercrest commenced operation in 2014, offering classes from 3 year old in the Early Learning Centre to Year One. We currently offer classes to Year Three, with new year levels opening each year. Our Primary Campus will cater for students from the ELC to Year 5. In 2019 our Middle Years Campus will open, offering classes at Year Six in its first year of operation, with the possibility of Year 7 classes commencing in the same year.
I would invite you to consider our College as one which will serve the needs of your child, both now and for the future.
