Private schools get resource boost

All Gold Coast schools will now have access to a suite of resources as move towards a new Australian curriculum.

Surfers Paradise MP and Minister for Education John-Paul Langbroek said the Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) materials, would be available to teachers in the non-state sector from Wednesday.

“The Newman Government is committed to revitalising frontline education services for all Queensland families, regardless of which school their children attend,” Mr Langbroek said.


“State school teachers have used the C2C material since late 2011 with great success.”

“Catholic and independent schools expressed an interest in using the materials, so in the spirit of cooperation across schooling sectors and with a view to boosting learning outcomes for all students, I decided that these resources should be made available to all Queensland teachers.”

Curriculum into the Classroom was designed to support schools as they introduced the Prep-Year 10 Australian Curriculum in English, Mathematics, Science, History and, from 2014, Geography.

The resources include lesson plans, whole-school, year level and unit plans, assessment and marking guides and teaching resources.
