Primary School

Ilim College of Australia is an independent Prep – Year 12 Islamic School. The primary school curriculum consists of eight key learning areas which include: English, Mathematics, History and Science (as part of Integrated Studies), Information Communications Technology, Art, Health and Physical Education and Languages Other than English (Arabic and Turkish). Islamic and Quran’ic Studies are also taught and make up the co-curricular priorities at our school.

At Ilim College the Curriculum is developed with the usage of Scope and Sequences which are directly derived from the Australian Curriculum (for English, Mathematics, Science and History) and Scope and Sequences which are derived through the AUSVELS Framework for all other key learning areas. Islamic and Quran’ic Studies Curriculum content is developed by a committee of teachers from the school. However, whilst planning, reference is made to the Personal and Interpersonal learning areas of the VELS Framework. Ilim College is transitioning towards adapting the General Capabilities in the Islamic Studies Curriculum from 2013 onwards. For elaborations of topics on the Scope and Sequence, teachers and parents are asked to refer to the AUSVELS website or the 4.0 version of the ACARA website for the Australian Curriculum.
