Teaching and learning

Core curriculum
Our Moranbah East curriculum program is the sum of the learning experiences students receive from the school, both in and outside of the classroom.
Moranbah East State School has an established vision statement 'Pride in our achievements leads to success’  and five principles of school-wide pedagogy, which are incorporated into units of classroom work to position Moranbah East children to be life-long learners with the skills and attributes we value now and in the future.
The school-wide pedagogical principles are:
  • Valuing self and others
  • Being an active local and global citizen
  • Being a responsible risk taker
  • Being an effective communicator
  • Engaging in challenging thinking


 Teaching and learning at Moranbah East State School incorporates:
  • English (a minimum of seven hours instruction per week, with an expected ten hours in prep to year five)
  • Mathematics (a minimum of five hours instruction per week)
  • Science (a minimum of one hour instruction per week in prep to year 2 and 1.75 hours in years 3,4,5 and 6)
  • History (a minimum of half an hour in prep to year 2 and 1 hour in years 3 to 6)
 These subjects are treated as discrete, focused key learning areas and are taught according to the Australian National Curriculum using the Queensland Curriculum into the Classroom (C2C) materials as a base. 
 We support these areas with an integrated approach to other subject areas.  Integrated units of work driven by the key learning area of Studies of Society and the Environment and Pre-Geography, and supported by the remaining subjects of  the arts, technology and health are a feature of every classroom program of instruction at Moranbah East.
 Specialist lessons are taught by specialist staff in music, Japanese LOTE (year six and seven only) and physical education, as well as science for years four and five complement this program of instruction.
 A summary of our core curriculum program provides a broad overview, however, teachers use more detailed planning to support classroom implementation.
