"The Australian Curriculum sets the expectations for what all Australian students should be taught, regardless of where they live or their background. For F-10, it means that students now have access to the same content, and their achievement can be judged against consistent national standards. Schools and teachers are responsible for the organisation of learning and they will choose contexts for learning and plan learning in ways that best meet their students' needs and interests" .

At Prospect Primary School, subjects taught by classroom teachers in line with F - 7 Australian Curriculum are English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Technologies (Design and Digital).
Subjects taught by specialist teachers are Visual Arts, Greek, Physical Education, Humanities and Performing Arts.
In Visual Arts at Prospect Primary School we are guided by the Australian Curriculum. Each class receives at least 2 Visual Art sessions for two terms.
Learning in Visual Arts involves students making and responding to artworks and drawing on the world as a source of ideas. Students engage with the knowledge of visual art, develop skills, techniques and processes and use a variety of materials as they explore a large range of forms, styles and contexts.
Students are also given the opportunity for Personalised Learning in Visual Arts where supported and well-structured sessions specifically meet the needs, interests and abilities of individual students. Each student will have a choice in the topics they pursue and will be provided with more flexible learning opportunities. Students will select the visual effects they want to create through problem solving and making decisions. They will turn their learned art techniques, knowledge, skills, passions and interests into successful art projects/outcomes individually or in groups.
