Annandale State School has a School Curriculum Framework (PDF, 967KB) which provides information on:
- the school's pedagogical framework - Dimensions of Teaching and Learning
- the learning areas covered in the school's framework
- the content in the units of work covered by year level
All learning areas are important in developing knowledge and understanding.
The school strategic focus for all students is:
Reading and comprehension
Maintaining a high attendance rate - 95% attendance is our goal for each student.
The "Five Dimensions of Teaching and Learning" form the basis of every teacher’s professional practice:
More information on the detail for each dimension may be found at Education Queensland's Teaching and Learning page.

Internal e.g. formative and summative tasks, academic achievement levels, reading benchmarks, individual student goal achievement
Anecdotal feedback e.g. student feedback, community feedback
