Core curriculumreading

Our Frenchville curriculum program is the sum of the learning experiences students receive from the school, both in and outside of the classroom. To meet systemic requirements, our Frenchville Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Plan is based on the national curriculum.

Frenchville’s established vision statement 'Together We Shape Tomorrow' and our five principles of school-wide pedagogy are incorporated into the enacted curriculum to position Frenchville children to be life-long learners, with the skills and attributes we value now and in the future.

The school-wide pedagogical principles are:

  • valuing self and others
  • being active local and global citizens
  • being responsible risk takers
  • being  effective communicators
  • engaging in challenging thinking


Teaching and learning at Frenchville State School incorporates:

  • English (a minimum of seven hours instruction per week, with an expected ten hours in prep to year four)
  • mathematics (a minimum of five hours instruction per week)
  • science (a minimum of one hour instruction per week in prep to year 2, 1.75 hours in years 3 to 6)
  • Humanities and social science (a mimimum of two hours instruction per week, incorporating the subjects of history, geography, civics and citizenship and economics, technology and digital curriculum, as well as the arts and health as appropriate)


Specialist lessons taught by specialist staff in music, Japanese LOTE (year five and six only) and physical education complement this program of instruction.
