This means that all your leave balances will remain intact when you move.

The Victorian Curriculum F-10

The Victorian Curriculum F-10 incorporates most of the Australian Curriculum F-10. It reflects Victorian priorities and standards. The most notable difference between the two is in the structural design.

Victorian government and Catholic schools need to use the Victorian Curriculum F-10. Independent schools can use the Victorian Curriculum as a model for implementing the Australian one.
