Let us learn! We see exciting experiences for learning all around us!
Our curriculum is aligned with, and meets the requirements of, the Australian National Curriculum. The school aims to provide skills and subjects reflecting the needs, interests and experiences of the children and their parents. Emphasis is on experiential learning situations, where teachers facilitate learning.
Students are offered the opportunity to be involved in program development and evaluation. Assessment is student and teacher initiated, non-competitive and continuous. We do take part in National Testing Programs to satisfy regulations.
Many learning experiences are conducted beyond the classroom including excursions, camps, special events, and cultural performances.
BRIS participates in several programs to enhance its goal of providing authentic, genuine learning experiences. Some of these programs include Kids in Action, Ripple Kindness Project, Students’ Voice through weekly Circle Time meetings, The Breathe Project and the school’s Eumundi Market stall.
Parent partnership is welcome at B.R.I.S. in all areas of school life. BRIS recognises that parents are their child’s essential educators. Teachers and parents thus take a ‘team approach’ to each student’s learning. Parents may join the classroom activities or undertake ancillary positions (maintenance, P & F, fundraising, excursion support or other duties), depending on the school’s need and the individual’s expertise.
