Point Lonsdale Primary School's curriculum is comprehensive, based on the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) and enhanced through the planned inclusion of camps, excursions, arts and sporting activities. Specialist Teaching areas are Spanish, Visual Arts and Physical Education. Students are encouraged to participate in activities designed to develop their potential as global citizens and future leaders. The introduction of a Café approach and the daily 5 at Years 3&4 and blogging as an integral part of the 1:1 laptop program has been well recieved by all involved. At all times the achievement of personal best is the goal. Focussed teaching at the individual point of need and emphasis on the use of authentic assessment methods and reflective practices are critical elements of our approach to learning and teaching.
