The aspiration for all children and for every young person is that they should be successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society and at work.

By providing structure, support and direction to young people's learning, the curriculum should enable them to develop these four capacities.

The curriculum should complement the important contributions of families and communities.
