Teaching and Learning
Mandurah Baptist College provides a comprehensive curriculum which caters for the individual needs of all students, fostering a desire for learning and excellence.
The Primary School curriculum is shaped and guided by the Western Australian Kindergarten Guidelines, the Early Years Learning Framework and the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline.
Kindergarten to Year Two
Mandurah Baptist College students begin their College journey in our Early Childhood Education Program from Kindergarten to Year Two in a safe, supportive and stimulating learning environment.
The College’s Early Childhood Education Statement of Philosophy, outlines the principles of our early years’ education program, which fosters a love of learning with a focus on building strong foundations within an age appropriate context that encourages play, discovery and an appreciation for the wider world.
Each child’s development and long-term success is optimised through a play-based curriculum that is guided by the Early Years Learning Framework, the National Quality Standards for Early Childhood Education, the Western Australian Curriculum and Assessment Outline and Christian values. The individual interests and needs of each child are considered, so that each may grow and learn at their own rate.
Middle and Upper Primary
Mandurah Baptist College students continue their learning journey in the Primary Years from Year Three to Six. These years of schooling at Mandurah Baptist College focus on consolidating the skills developed in early childhood and aim to further develop independence, responsibility and a capacity for social conscience through academic rigour. Students at educational risk are supported through targeted intervention from specialist academic enrichment and support teachers. The integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) including support from a specialist ICT teacher, occurs across the curriculum and year levels. Students also have the opportunity to enjoy developing their Arts skills and understanding with specialist Visual Arts and Music teachers. Other specialist learning areas include Languages (Indonesian or French) and Physical Education. Music tuition is also available during the week for a range of musical instruments.
Mandurah Baptist College provides students with a range of different extra-curricular opportunities.
