Catholic Education South Australia


At St Joseph's we base our Science Curriculum around the "Primary Connections" resource.

Primary Connections was developed through a partnership between the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Government Department of Education.  Primary Connections focuses on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy and is aligned with The Australian Curriculum.

PrimaryConnections key features:

  •  An inquiry and investigative approach
  •  A comprehensive professional learning program
  •  Award winning curriculum resources which link science with literacy
  •  An ongoing research and evaluation program.

Each year level will participate in a variety of units, all of which are aligned to one of the following areas: Biological Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Earth and Space Sciences and Physical Sciences.
