& Learning

At Marree Aboriginal School we educate students from Preschool to Year 12, in a nurturing and stimulating learning environment, with a focus on developing the skills needed for all students to make their way in the world. Class sizes are small, which enables teachers to cater for individuals and to personalise learning activities, depending on what stage each student is at, on their learning journey. 

Quality teaching and learning at Marree Aboriginal School is about ensuring a robust curriculum that reflects an understanding of the changing nature of young people as learners and the challenges and demands that will continue to shape learning in the future. The school’s broad educational goals include supporting students to become successful learners, confident individuals and active and informed citizens and develop a strong sense of identity.


In the preschool play is the main teaching tool for preschool learning.’ Play allows ‘children to ask questions, solve problems and engage in critical thinking’ with adult support. At Marree educators intentionally teach through play and activity and assess the development of each individual and then design learning and intentional teaching opportunities to build on children’s current understanding.
