All registered schools in Tasmania follow and teach the Australian Curriculum and its eight key learning areas. These are English, Mathematics, Science, Health and Physical Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, The Arts, Technologies and Languages.
We are a registered school and follow the Australian Curriculum and actively participate in regular audits performed by the Education Department of Tasmania.
At NWCS, we appreciate the role of education in building and equipping our students to be successful contributors in their communities, and to develop a richer understanding of our world. This is achieved through supporting the key eight learning areas, and allowing students to engage, discover, explain and extend their learning.
Sport is an important part of our curriculum to develop a variety of skills and personal resilience. Athletics and swimming lessons are run every year, while the senior students are involved in hiking, kayaking, camping and learning ropes (see extra programs - outdoor recreation).
The Safe Schools program is not taught by NWCS. In contrast, we have a zero tolerance policy towards any form of bullying, and students are taught Christian principles of self-worth and respect for others.
