English

Our Faculty is responsible for delivering learning in the areas of English; Senior History (Ancient and Modern), Drama and Studies of Religion.

All teachers in our Faculty are passionate educators experienced in working with students of widely varying interests, skills and backgrounds. We are absolutely committed to enabling those students who bring a responsible and positive attitude to their studies to achieving results that reflect their personal best.

The English faculty staff are here to guide students in their studies and we welcome and encourage students to come and see us regarding any assistance needed.

Language shapes our understanding of ourselves and our world. It is the primary means by which we relate to others and is central to the intellectual, social and emotional development of all students.

In English we learn about the power, value and art of the English language for communication, knowledge and enjoyment.

Texts studied could include songs, film, poetry, multimedia, plays, novels, short stories, non-fiction, Shakespearean drama; advertisements; articles; picture books and many more.
