At Christian Brothers’ High School Lewisham the Primary curriculum encompasses the development of the whole student, academically, socially, personally and in faith.  We expect the boys to always give their best, no matter the task or activity.   The curriculum is there to challenge and evoke thought and is directed towards the individual talents and abilities.


CBHS Lewisham offers the six Key Learning Areas (KLA’s) which are mandated by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA)


  • English;

  • Mathematics;

  • Science and Technology;

  • Human Society and Its Environment;

  • Personal Development, Health and Physical Education; and

  • Creative Arts

  • Languages


The school offers Religious Education based on the To Know, Worship and Love program. This program is about developing meaningful relationships in the boys’ lives and is based around the boys’ experiences.


The school also offers the boys the experience of being introduced to two languages; Italian in Year 5 and French in Year 6.


At CBHS Lewisham we understand that what is being taught is just as important as how it is being taught. Being a boys’ school, we understand the importance of making our learning creative, meaningful and exciting for all the boys, as well as making sure we are catering for different levels.


The boys have the opportunity to be involved in various educational programs throughout the year which are extensions to the curriculum.  Some of these include:


  • University of New South Wales competitions (Mathematics, English, Spelling, Writing, Computer Studies and Science);

  • Maths Olympiad;

  • Mathletics;

  • Science Enrichment;

  • Waterford Words;

  • The Portrait Prize;

  • School Musical;

  • Media projects; and

  • Debating.


To enhance these programs and the curriculum, the boys are involved in a number of excursions and incursions throughout the year.  Overnight excursions are also organised for Year 5 (Milson Island Camp for four days) and Year 6 (Canberra excursion for two days).
