Curriculum Update

This year our school will begin to explore the new Victorian Curriculum introduced by the  Victorian government. The purpose of the new curriculum is to ensure that Victorian students are better equipped to deal with our changing world.

The new Victorian Curriculum aims to give students the skills they need for work and life: literacy, numeracy, scientific knowledge and skills, resilience, respectful relationships, the use of digital technologies and the capacity for critical and creative thinking and expression.


Our school places a high priority on literacy and numeracy, providing extension, individual and small group support programs to cater for individual needs. Science, Visual Art, Performing Arts and Physical Education are taught as specialist subjects.

As well as the main learning strands and associated domains, extensive extra-curricula programs are integrated throughout the school year.

Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programs including: Camping, Instrumental Program (Strings and Keyboard), Gardening, Gymnastics, Swimming, Waterwatch and Interschool sports.

Our educational programs are enhanced by the use of multimedia technology, with computers fully integrated at all year levels. Every classroom has a large number of laptop computers and a bank of ipads for this purpose. Use of photography and video media are an additional mode of learning and presenting study areas.

Results from state wide and national testing confirm that Reservoir Primary School provides highly successful programs and effective classroom teaching matched to the needs of the students.
