Introducing MAPPEN

As part of our efforts to ensure that your child receives the best possible education we are excited to announce that we will be delivering the MAPPEN Curriculum.

The MAPPEN curriculum represents approximately three hours of teaching time each week. It covers the content and skills from the following areas of the Western Australian Curriculum:

  • Science

  • Humanities and Social Sciences

  • Design and Technologies

  • Health and Physical Education

  • Critical and Creative Thinking

  • Personal and Social Capability

  • Ethical Understanding

  • Intercultural Understanding

MAPPEN also includes logical integration of literacy, numeracy, and digital technologies.

Eight Concepts

MAPPEN provides opportunities for students to explore content and skills through real world examples. Each term, we will deliver an eight week learning sequence which is designed around one of eight concepts.

Over 8 terms (2 years), your child will investigate each of the concepts once. A single concept is investigated across the school simultaneously, with age appropriate content and skills being investigated at each year level. MAPPEN promotes rich conversations at the dinner table and encourages your child to ask meaningful questions about their world.

MAPPEN has a strong focus on building your child’s capacity to develop questions and to plan and conduct their own inquiry. It aligns with our belief that alongside the core literacy and numeracy skills, students in the 21st Century need to have opportunities to question, wonder and create.

MAPPEN is a world class curriculum designed by Australian educators for Australian schools. More than 400 Australian schools are currently implementing MAPPEN. If you'd like to find out more about MAPPEN you can visit getmappen.com or talk to our MAPPEN Coordinator.
