English programs reflect the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) K-10 Syllabus requirements and are designed to allow students to use language to learn about language.
Our aim is to allow each child to become competent in all aspects of language and to communicate effectively through speaking, listening, reading, writing, viewing and representing.
Children are encouraged to think in ways that are imaginative, creative, interpretative and critical and to shape, make and share meaning according to purpose, audience and context. Students will understand the power of effective communication and the role of language in developing positive interaction and co-operation with others.
As a result of experiences offered, students will learn how to speak, listen, read and write in many contexts, to use English to learn in all Key Learning Areas and to develop fundamental knowledge and understanding of Language. This basis will enable students to use English as a tool for effective learning throughout life.
