The Australian Curriculum for Science and Technology
The latest information about the Australian Curriculum can be obtained from the Australian Curriculum and Reporting Authority (ACARA) website.
It is important to note that the Australian Curriculum refers only to Science.
Available for use but awaiting final endorsement, is the Australian Curriculum: Technologies.
In NSW, The Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards (BoSTES) is responsible for developing syllabuses for NSW schools. Subsequently, in NSW, Science does not stand alone as a subject area in K-6. Thus, it is important for primary schools to focus on the Science and Technology K-6 syllabus developed by BoSTES.
