Ashdale Secondary College’s curriculum is based on the Western Australian Curriculum.
The Australian Curriculum outlines the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities necessary for all Australian students. The Australian Curriculum describes the learning entitlement of students as a foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It clarifies what all young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for high-quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students.
The Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) is the independent authority responsible for developing a national curriculum, a national assessment program and a national data collection and reporting program that supports 21st-century learning for all Australian students.
ACARA’s work is carried out in collaboration with various stakeholders, including teachers, principals, governments, State and Territory education authorities, professional education associations, community groups and the general public.
