Learning and Teaching

At St Thomas' we endeavour to provide an education that prepares students for their future, not our past.

AusVELS is the curriculum that provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and common achievement standards, which schools use to plan student learning programs, assess student progress and report to parents.

 AusVELS incorporates the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, History and Science within the curriculum framework first developed for the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS). AusVELS uses a structure, which reflects the design of the new Australian Curriculum whilst retaining Victorian priorities and approaches to teaching and learning.
