Teaching and learning

At Sunbury State School, we recognise the importance of ensuring children are literate and numerate by the time they leave us and move on into Year 7.  We follow the Australian National Curriculum which provides for a broad and deep education. Students are engaged in meaningful, stimulating learning designed to cater for their diverse needs, with planned programs designed by teachers in consultation with specialist teachers.


Teachers at Sunbury State School use the Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) as a resource for curriculum delivery across the key leaning areas, which is adapted to suit the needs of their children in each class. All students participate in learning activities revolving around the Key Learning Areas of English, Maths, Science, History, Geography (HASS), the Arts, Music, Technology and PE (Physical Education). Japanese is also taught in Years 5 and 6, and we offer a rich music and instrumental curriculum.



Sunbury State School is committed to implementing a high quality community engagement program for parents and pre-prep aged children. Our KOALAS program aims to help children learn about school life as well as parents participating within our school community right from the start of their child’s education. One of Sunbury’s excellent teachers, is responsible for organising and implementing the program supported by a teacher aide all year round.


Sunbury State School’s Pedagogical Framework underpins our curriculum documents and policies including our reporting and assessment framework. This document captures the school's vision and values, and lays the foundation of our approach to education. At Sunbury our continued focus is on improving academic achievement for all students by focusing on the teaching of reading in every classroom every day. Further details can be found in the Sunbury Annual Implementation Plan.​​
