Primary School Curriculum




The academic standard of the national compulsory education system is the key link to strengthen the English learning, the integration of the Australian Curriculum, the increase of traditional Chinese culture, calligraphy and other characteristics of the Chinese curriculum. 

English teaching emphasizes the cultivation of students' listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Foreign teachers use a variety of teaching methods for teaching. 

Schools regularly carry out extra-curricular, outdoor activities. Every year, students should have a "four one" experience: a museum visit, a charity event, a party experience, an outing experience.

Senior VCE School Curriculum

The international Senior School Program is a three-year program that made up of a preVCE Year (Year 10) and two VCE Years (Years 11 and 12), when students will be registered as VCE students in Australia. Note that promotion to the VCE Years depends upon satisfactory completion of the Pre-VCE Year.

The VCE is a course of study culminating in the VCE Certificate, which is issued at the end of Year 12 to students who have completed the equivalent of at least eight VCE Subjects, including two years of English.

A student wishing to use the VCE as a pathway to university in Australia will choose to have up to six VCE subjects (including English) assessed. The student’s total VCE mark will be used to rank that student against all other students studying in Australia. This rank is called the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) and is the main criterion for selection into most university courses in Australia. Students entering an Australian university will also require a satisfactory result in VCE English.

The International Senior School Program consists of:

(a) Stand-Alone Subjects. These are either one-semester or two-semester subjects. Some of these are subjects mandated by the China’s Ministry of Education.

(b) VCE Subjects. These will form part of the VCE and appear on a student’s final VCE Certificate. They can be one-semester or two-semester subjects. Only students who have passed Year 10 can take these subjects.

(c) Assessable VCE Subjects Students who wish to use the ATAR as a pathway to Australian universities will have their work in certain specified VCE Subjects assessed by a combination of classwork and external examination. Note that several Assessable VCE Subjects, such as English, Chinese, Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics, require that students have first passed a prerequisite VCE Subject.

Students will select subjects with the guidance of a member of the Senior School leadership team and final approval by the Head of the Senior School.




Advantages of VCE Studies

VCE has many advantages: 1) students are able to choose the subjects they study and complete examinations; 2) no extra exam is needed by students who score more than 60% in English for entry to Australian universities; 3) Chinese candidates need only take a special English subject for non-English speakers and are granted bonus points for their second language (Chinese); 4) it is backed by the Australian government and so is recognized by all Australian universities and by universities in English-speaking countries (such as the UK, the United States, Canada) and in Europe.
