The Australian Curriculum sets out the knowledge, understanding and skills needed for life and work in the 21st century and establishes common standards and high expectations of achievement across the nation.
Queensland schools are currently implementing:
the Australian Curriculum for English, Mathematics, Science and History in Prep to Year 10
the Queensland curriculum for the remaining areas of the curriculum in Prep to Year 10
the Queensland Senior schooling curriculum for Years 11 & 12.
  • Authority subjects are based on syllabuses that have been approved and issued by the  QCAA.  Results in Authority subjects can count in the calculation of OP’s, the most common selection devices used by the tertiary sector.
  • Authority-registered subjects are developed from Subject Area Syllabuses (  SAS  ) and when successfully completed contribute four credits towards the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). They are not used in the calculation of  OP ‘s.
  • Distance Education

    The Tara Shire State College provides students access to facilities that allow them to study OP subjects that are not offered at the College.
