The curriculum offered at Rivercrest reflects a concept-driven, inquiry learning approach that builds upon the students prior learning and past experiences. While the teaching of literacy and numeracy is a core component of the curriculum, there is also a strong focus on social, emotional, physical and spiritual development.
The curriculum aims to foster the ability to think critically and creatively, within a framework of inquiry-learning and discovery, such that students are able to make valid and meaningful connections between their learning and their developing worldview. Rivercrest offers the International Baccalaureate’s Primary Years Programme for ELC–Year 5.
Currently, we are a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme for students in Years 6-10.* Our Middle Years Campus opened in 2019, beginning with classes in Year 6.
