Teaching & Learning

Selecting the right school for your child is one of the first important decisions a parent can make. At Beeac Primary School we aim to provide prospective families with the opportunity to see our school in action, meet staff and students,  receive relevant information or make an appointment to meet the Principal to discuss you and your child’s expectations about schools and learning.    


Beeac Primary School promotes explicit instruction in every classroom. This involves directly teaching students content and skills to be learned, using clear and intentional language. Teacher modelling, guidance and multiple exposures ensure that student-teacher interaction and student engagement are high. 

Our Literacy lessons focus on teaching students the essential skills of reading, writing and spelling as well as developing equally important speaking and listening skills. 

We use the evidenced-based program ‘Sounds Write’ across all year levels which is a  structured phonics approach. Children develop their knowledge of sounds within the English language in an ordered manner through explicit instruction. 


Our Mathematics program is underpinned by the three areas of the Victorian Mathematics Curriculum: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability.

Our Mathematics lessons follow our Whole School instructional Model and consists of whole-class, group and individual tasks that are differentiated to cater for different levels of understanding in Mathematics.

We believe that students learn best in Mathematics when they are engaged in real-life mathematical situations and able to work collaboratively to problem solve and learn from each other. Ongoing assessments are used throughout mathematical topics to inform teaching and to target learning needs.


Beeac Primary School has adopted Auslan as our Language other than English within The Victorian Curriculum.

This is facilitated by the classroom teachers with learning material and content provided by Auslan Education Services Victoria.

The study of Auslan provides opportunities for students to develop their intercultural capabilities, understanding and respect for others, appreciation of diversity and openness to different perspectives and experiences.


Beeac Primary School provides all students with the opportunity to participate in weekly STEM classes. Children are encouraged to explore the world around them and develop their understanding of science, design and technology concepts.

The Science curriculum provides opportunities for students to develop an understanding of important scientific concepts and processes, the practices used to develop scientific knowledge, the contribution of science to our culture and society, and its applications in our lives. The curriculum supports students to develop the scientific knowledge, understandings and skills to make informed decisions about local, national and global issues and to participate, if they so wish, in science-related careers.

We aim to give children the ability to solve problems and make informed, evidence based decisions, while developing skills such as questioning, predicting, planning, conducting, analysing and evaluating.

Health & Physical Education

Health and Physical Education 

We understand the importance of sport in developing teamwork skills, strength, personal and community health, and promoting overall wellbeing.

In addition to these practices, all students participate in an annual swimming program which is undertaken in Terms One and Four, with students travelling into Colac for their lessons.

Our school is affiliated with Achper (Australian Council for Health Physical Education and Recreation) and has received significant funding through Active Schools to support the health and Physical Education teaching and learning program at Beeac Primary School. 

We participate with other rural and regional schools within our area though the Polwarth Cluster and Colac District. Students have the opportunity to compete in extracurricular sporting events include: Athletics, Cross Country, Lightning Premierships (AFL, Basketball, Netball and Soccer), Tennis and many more. 

MACC - Mobile Art Craft Centre / MARC - Mobile Area Resource Centre

The core curriculum at Beeac Primary School is enhanced by specialists including the MARC and MACC vans.

The MARC van allows students and staff the opportunity to borrow resources and books while also providing focussed library studies to students. In 2024, MARC visits our school every second Wednesday.

The MACC van enhances the Arts curriculum through providing an array of art experiences and opportunities for students across the school. Beeac Primary School is the base school for this service. In 2024, the MACC program is delivered to the students in our school every second Wednesday.
