Parents' Guide to the NSW Primary Syllabuses
PDF - 16 pages - 1 MB
The Board of Studies has provided NSW government schools with copies of the Parents’ Guide to the NSW Primary Syllabuses for distribution to parents.
The Parents’ Guide has been developed to help parents follow their child’s early learning and to help them talk with teachers about day-to-day classroom activities and their child’s progress.
The Guide provides some examples of the kinds of things children can learn in each of the key learning areas in each stage of primary school.
The Parents’ Guide is being made available through this website as a PDF document that can be printed off in full, and in two web versions. One version provides for the examples to be viewed for each stage, as in the printed Guide, while the other version allows for the examples to be viewed under each subject.
The Parents’ Guide is also available in the following languages:
Arabic PDF - 9 pages - 387 KB
Chinese (traditional) PDF - 9 pages - 609 KB
Chinese (simplified) PDF - 9 pages - 618 KB
Hindi PDF - 9 pages - 792 KB
Spanish PDF - 9 pages - 372 KB
Vietnamese PDF - 9 pages - 321 KB
A number of teachers, parents, principals and curriculum experts have contributed to the Guide. To help us to make sure future editions of the Guide are even more helpful to parents and teachers, we invite your feedback.
