English

 

​The Australian Curriculum: English aims to ensure that students:

  • Learn to listen, read, view, speak, write, create and reflect on increasingly complex and sophisticated spoken, written and multimodal texts across a growing range of contexts with accuracy, fluency and purpose.
  • Appreciate, enjoy and use the English language in all its variations and develop a sense of its richness and power to evoke feelings, convey information, form ideas, facilitate interaction with others, entertain, persuade and argue.
  • Understand how standard Australian English works in its spoken and written forms and in combination with non-linguistic forms of communication to create meaning.
  • Develop interest and skills in inquiring into the aesthetic aspects of texts, and develop an informed appreciation of literature.
