At H.P.S we pride ourselves on our facilitation of rich learning experiences for our students. It is with this in mind that we deliver the fully comprehensive set of MAPPEN Integrated Studies units across the school. We use a whole school approach where in each level from Foundation to Grade 6, the students focus on the same overarching theme each term. Our units give students the knowledge and skills they will need to succeed in their global community.
The Integrated Studies curriculum is designed around the eight concepts of Sustainability, Identity, Community, Connections, Change, Discovery, Social Justice, and Creativity. Different aspects of these concepts are explored at each level. Over the two years, the students engage with every Vic Curriculum standard in both Learning focuses and assessable standards. Each unit also integrates some English and Maths contextually to allow students to see the need for application of these crucial skills in their everyday life.
