Teaching & Learning

Early Childhood

At Dalwallinu District High School, we see all our students as individuals and take onto account their diverse backgrounds and experiences. High quality teaching and learning programs support the need for play, social interaction and modelling of behaviour. Our students are allowed to explore, experiment, discover, improvise, innovate, create, question, discuss and construct. Learning involves repeated opportunities with concrete materials, equipment and peers.  

The Early Years Learning Framework has recently been revised and released as the national approved learning framework Belonging, Being and Becoming.

The Early Years Learning Framework describes the principles, practice and outcomes essential to support and enhance young children’s learning from birth to five years of age, as well as their transition to school.

The 5 Learning Outcomes are designed to capture the integrated and complex learning and development of all children across the birth to 5 age range. The Learning Outcomes are:

  • Children have a strong sense of identity
  • Children are connected with and contribute to their world
  • Children have a strong sense of wellbeing
  • Children are confident and involved learners
  • Children are effective communicators.

Dalwallinu District High School ensures the learning needs of your child are being met and that they are well prepared for the future.
