Last updated 11:21 AM on 22 November 2013

How do teachers decide what your child will study each term at school?  How do composite or combined classes work?

Why do students at different schools seem to be studying entirely different things, despite being in the same year?

And what will happen next year, when the new Australian curriculum starts in NSW for both primary and secondary schools?

Understanding how the curriculum relates to the real world of the classroom and to your child's daily lessons can help you better support them with their homework and study.

It will also help you ask the right questions at the next parent-teacher interviews.

Find out more about what your child will learn in the new curriculum on the School A to Z website.
